Guam – Another individual indicted in the high profile prison contraband conspiracy case intends on taking a plea deal with the government but she must first be drug tested before proceeding.
Roslina Hocog was charged with simple possession of a schedule two controlled substance and destruction of evidence in the case involving 12 individuals implicated in a conspiracy to smuggle drugs into the island’s prison compound.
Of those individuals 6 were Department of Corrections officers, 3 were prison inmates, and the rest were individuals with ties to the inmates.
Hocog was arrested after the investigation led authorities to her home which was then raided.
She was successful in having her case severed from the co-actors as the two charges against her were not for conspiracy to promote major prison contraband.
Because of this, her plea agreement will not require her to testify against the other defendants.
As part of the plea, the government has agreed to dismiss the possession charge. This means that Hocog will only plead guilty to destruction of evidence as a misdemeanor.
While today Hocog was set to enter her guilty plea, Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola ruled that Hocog must first submit to a drug test, as it’s been over a month since she was last tested.
The change of plea is set for December 6th.
