Mark Torre Jr. has succeeded in moving his trial forward. On Wednesday, jurors were called into the Superior Court of Guam to consult with Judge Arthur Barcinas.
Legal counsels expressed that a survey conducted with the jury revealed at least 3 jurors who shared health and safety concerns relative to reporting for jury duty.
Judge Barcinas and legal counsels questioned the jurors on the ability to continue serving as part of the jury panel in light of the public health pandemic.
According to JOG Spokesperson Kristina Blas, trial has been scheduled to begin at 10 am on Thursday.
