Man dies minutes after being sentenced to jail


CLEVELAND (AP) -- Authorities in Cleveland say a man collapsed and died outside a courtroom minutes after a judge sentenced him to 60 days in jail for trying to restrain and kiss a 14-year-old girl.

The coroner's office was expected to determine why 51-year-old Miguel Aybar died Wednesday.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports that Aybar had slumped to the floor in the hallway outside the courtroom.

Aybar had been found guilty of a third-degree misdemeanor charge of unlawful restraint.

He was accused of restraining the 14-year-old girl and trying to kiss her on the mouth.
