The US Attorney’s Office says former Corrections Officer Eugene Sunega lied when he claimed he never did any illegal drugs.
Guam – The US Attorney’s Office believes former Corrections Officer Eugene Sunega does not deserve to have a reduced sentence because he lied when he claimed he never used any illegal drugs.
Sunega was busted in February with illegal drugs during a random search at the prison compound back in February. He pleaded guilty in April, admitting that the crystal methamphetamine or ice he brought to work that day was for a federal inmate.
Under his plea deal, he faces a maximum of 20 years and a fine of up to a million dollars.
The US Attorney’s Office believes that Sunega should not get a reduction of his sentence because, based on the presentence investigation report, he lied when he was asked whether he had ever used any illegal drugs. He answered no, when in fact, the US Attorneys Office says that in his plea agreement, he admitted that he had previously lied about not doing any illegal drugs.
“This admission alone is sufficient to support a sentencing adjustment for obstruction of justice,” the US Attorneys Office writes.
