A superseding indictment has been handed down in the District Court of Guam against Hansen Helicopters and its executives all of whom are maintaining their innocence.

The indictment now names two additional defendants in the case — Hansen Corporation and Randall Rogers.

Hansen is charged with five counts of aircraft parts fraud while Rogers is charged with one count of conspiracy to defraud the Federal Aviation Administration.

The initial indictment was against John Walker, Marvin Reed, Kenneth Crowe, and Phillip Kapp and only contained 16 charges against the executives.

The superseding indictment lists 81 charges which now include employing a mechanic and pilot without proper certification, bribery, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and registration violations involving aircraft, to name a few.

In court this morning, Hansen Corporation, along with all the co-defendants, pleaded not guilty to the charges contained in the superseding indictment.

They were also allowed to remain on pretrial release under the conditions set forth in the initial case.

Trial has been set for March 26.
