Jeremiah Isezaki was sentenced to six months for the criminal misdemeanor conviction of assault and six more months for contempt of court as he went on the run causing the judiciary to expend time and energy in tracking him down.

Sentenced to one-year incarceration, Jeremiah Isezaki was shown leniency by local courts as he will serve the term concurrently with his federal violation.

In court today, Isezaki was sentenced to six months for the criminal misdemeanor conviction of assault and six more months for contempt of court as he went on the run causing the judiciary to expend time and energy in tracking him down.

Isezaki was convicted in February for assaulting a married couple outside their Agat home last year. Superior Court Judge Vernon Perez indicated that this sentence would run concurrently to his federal incarceration term of 14 months for violating conditions of his release.

According to his attorney, Samuel Tekker, Isezaki will serve this term in a federal penitentiary in Colorado. As a result, Judge Perez released Isezaki from local custody transferring him over to federal authorities to begin his sentence.

Isezaki told the court that he does not intend to return to Guam after his sentence is completed. Instead, he has hopes of starting a new life in the mainland with his family.
