Guam – The man who raped his step daughter over the course of several years, and then blamed it on a “Chuukeese love potion” was sentenced in court today.
An apologetic Martin Rengechy told the court “I apologize to the people of Guam and to you your honor.” Although accepting guilt in the matter he did not make any mention of the victim.
Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola acknowledged his remorse but also acknowledged the severity of the crime stating, “you were her step father, you were a person she trusted.”
Rengechy has been in prison for a little over a year and his request for furlough has been denied by the court.
Today he was sentenced to 8 years with all but 3 years suspended. This means that for the charge of 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct he will only spend an additional 2 years behind bars.
With the conviction, Rengechy is subject to deportation.
