Convicted Navy sailor’s release extended

1514

Bezon was convicted of criminal sexual conduct and was supposed to self surrender this Friday.

Guam – Convicted of sexual assault, Navy sailor Quinton Bezon was supposed to self-surrender to the Department of Corrections however in court today Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo extended his release.

In April, Bezon was found guilty of one count of third degree criminal sexual conduct as a second degree felony and one count of fourth degree criminal sexually conduct as a misdemeanor. He was sentenced to four years in prison and was scheduled to self-surrender to the Department of Corrections on August 25.

However, in court today Judge Michael Bordallo extended Bezon’s release for two weeks, pending an amendment to the superseding indictment. Apparently, the indictment does not reflect the correct verdict.

According to Judge Bordallo, the indictment reads a guilty verdict on the first and fifth counts rather than the first and third counts.

The next court hearing is scheduled for August 31 at 11 am.
