Santos and fellow inmate Jeremiah Isezaki are accused of brutally beating another prisoner in March this year.

Guam – The arraignment hearing for Albert Santos II has been delayed once again.

His Attorney Jay Arriola filed a motion to withdraw as legal counsel, stating, “I represent and counseled other witnesses and actors related to this case. These witnesses and actors have interests that are directly averse to the defendant Albert Santos II.”

Magistrate Judge Albert Tolentino accepted the withdrawal and has appointed Attorney Leslie Travis to represent Santos. Santos has been named as one of the two men involved in the savage beating of DOC maximum security inmate Justin Meno. While Jeremiah Izesaki has pleaded not guilty to the charges, Santos has not entered a plea. His arraignment hearing has been scheduled for July 12 at 1 pm at the Northern court satellite.
