Guam – A former Department of Corrections officer implicated in a conspiracy to smuggle contraband into the Mangilao prison facility may not be heading to trial as it was noted in court today that a resolution is possible.
Former DOC officer Shane Cruz is in negotiations with the government to resolve his case through a plea deal.
Cruz was implicated in the alleged conspiracy to promote major prison contraband at the Department of Corrections. He faces allegations of conspiracy, bribery and official misconduct.
Court documents state that Cruz smuggled contraband hidden in fast food bags on three separate occasions.
Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola has continued his hearing to February 13.
