The trial of a man accused of kidnapping a minor and sexually assaulting her after he allegedly forced her to smoke methamphetamine is nearing its end as the government and the defense have rested their cases.
In court today, Jayson Song listened quietly as Superior Court Judge Vernon Perez played back audio from the testimony of Guam Police Department Officer Santos which was made during cross examination.
The audio was related to testimony in which the victim’s mother reported to a DART special agent that Song emailed her requesting that the charges be dropped.
The playback was done to determine if the government would be calling additional witnesses. However, following the defense resting their case, the government opted not to.
Judge Perez subsequently set Nov. 13 as the date for closing arguments.
