Guam – Already serving a 45 year sentence, an inmate will now have to do additional time behind bars for his role in promoting major prison contraband.

If you do the crime you must do the time, that was the judgment offered by Superior Court Judge Vernon Perez who sentenced Raymond Torres Tedtaotao this morning.

Tedtaotao is already serving 45 years in prison for the 2013 Nimitz Hill home invasion.

He will now have to serve three more years, with credit for time served following a conviction for his role in the promotion of major prison contraband.

During a shakedown at the Department of Corrections (D.O.C) in Mangilao, Tedtaotao was discovered with a couple of make shift pipes with methamphetamine residue hidden in his prison cell.

Judge Perez, acknowledge that D.O.C. had taken administrative action against Tedtaotao following the discovery, notwithstanding this, the judge agreed with the government in that criminal consequences must be handed down to ensure that other inmates do not engage in the promotion of prison contraband.

The sentence was ordered to run consecutively with a year credit to be applied this means that Tedtaotao will have an additional two years added to his 45-year sentence.
