Nito Blas is accused of bribing a woman into giving him a massage.
Guam – Trial for former Mangilao Mayor Nito Blas has been delayed pending a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder assessment.
Former Mangilao Mayor Nito Blas’ attorney informed Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo that he will be undergoing an assessment for post traumatic stress disorder at the Veteran’s Community Based Outpatient Clinic.
It is unclear how the defense intends to utilize the assessment in the case, however, according to his attorney, the assessment is for the pre-trial conference.
As a result Judge Bordallo has continued the pre-trial conference hearing until November 9 at 10 am.
You may recall, Blas was accused of bribery, harassment, official misconduct and indecent exposure stemming from an incident which occurred in 2015.
The former Mayor pleaded not guilty to the charges and remains adamant that the exposure was an “accident.”
