Ex-DOC officer Fermin Maratita may have found himself in a bit of trouble as he has failed to check in as ordered by the court.
Maratita is one of the last defendants implicated in the Department of Corrections contraband conspiracy case awaiting sentencing.
Currently on release, he is supposed to adhere to the conditions set forth by Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola which includes checking in with probation by telephone.
Maratita, however, has not been complying. Probation told the court that the last time Maratita called in was on July 22nd. Attempts were made to contact Maratita but none were successful. Probation stated that a violation report is pending.
Maratita’s attorney, Douglas Moylan, did not address the pending violation. Rather, he said that Maratita has been keeping up to date.
He said he is just waiting for a response from the government on whether Maratita’s assistance, as laid out in the plea deal, is still required. The response will determine when Maratita can move forward with sentencing.
A hearing has been set for Sept 28th.
