A preliminary hearing was extended last Thursday morning for the two 17-year-old males who face charges of vehicular manslaughter, street racing and other offenses in the death of Gabriel Crispo, who was killed while jogging in the Huntington Drive median on Thursday, July 4 at 10:34 a.m. The hearing was rescheduled until Tuesday, October 1 at the request of attorneys for the two suspects and agreed to by the judge in the case and representatives of the District Attorney’s office.  

Crispo and his beloved dog–which also died at the scene–were struck by a white Mercedes that had allegedly been involved in a street race in the westbound lane of Huntington Drive at the intersection of Kenilworth Rd. Crispo, a native of Argentina, was a Spanish and ESL teacher at Daniel Murphy and St. Francis High Schools and, most recently, Pasadena City College. A third suspect in the street race was investigated, but has not been charged. 

The two suspects have been taken off house arrest and are attending high school. Their attorneys entered a request for a plea bargain and are seeking monitored home detention as punishment. 

A source told The Tribune that the District Attorney’s office is seeking terms in a juvenile detention camp for the suspects
