Another defendant in the case involving the largest cocaine bust in the Guam Police Department’s history has reached resolution.
Carl Aguon pled guilty to two charges contained in the indictment, the 9th charge of possession of a schedule 2 control substance and the 10th charge of possession of a firearm without proper identification both, as 3rd-degree felonies.
The drug charge carries a maximum of three years behind bars while the gun charge carries a two-year maximum sentence. This means that for both charges, Aguon is facing up to five years in prison.
Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo indicated that legal counsels have agreed to argue the range of the sentencing. Because of this, Bordallo ordered that a pre-sentence report be completed by probation in 30 days.
Aguon also requested for a speedy sentencing. As such, Bordallo further ordered that a sentencing memorandum be filed by Oct. 14th as Aguon is set to be sentenced on Oct. 17 at 2 p.m.
Meanwhile, co-defendant Randall Fulcher was also set to appear in court Thursday. However, it was indicated that authorities had just located him as it appears he was on the run. His apprehension means that he is facing sanctions for violating the terms of his pre-trial release. Fulcher’s next hearing is Sept. 10.
