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.
