Former Police Reservist James Esperon was given a deadline of August 31st to surrender so he could serve his 15 year sentence. He asked that his deadline to surrender be extended so he could celebrate his daughter’s first birthday in October.
Guam – He was just sentenced two days ago for the rape of a 12-year-old girl and now former police reservist James Esperon is back in court for yet another rape case.
Esperon was initially indicted in one case for both victims, but the case was severed so that Esperon could be tried separately for both victims.
For the first victim, who was 12 years old at the time Esperon raped her, he was sentenced to 15 years in prison and was given a deadline of August 31st to surrender.
In court today, Esperon asked for an extension of that deadline so that he could celebrate his daughter’s first birthday on October 9. Judge Michael Bordallo, however, denied Esperon’s request, sticking to the deadline of August 31st.
The second victim was 21 years old at the time Esperon allegedly raped her. The next court hearing has been scheduled for August 27 at 10 am while trial is set for September 8.
