More to take plea deal in DOC Contraband Conspiracy


Guam – Nearly one year ago six Department of Corrections officers, and 7 other individuals were implicated on charges related to promoting major prison contraband among other charges. While trial is months away developments in the case continue.

Three individuals indicted last year on charges related to promoting major prison contraband have already pleaded guilty to the charges now three more defendants may take deals with the government.

It was indicated in court today that Bruno Simmons has reached a deal with the government while Edward Crisostimo and Jerome San Nicolas are working towards resolution in the case.

House arrest restrictions for Ronald Meno were modified to allow Meno the ability to leave his home between 6 am and 6 pm.

Meanwhile former DOC head honcho of Internal Affairs Jeff Limo may need to find another attorney as another motion remains under the court’s advisement to disqualify his legal counsel Jon Ramos.

The next hearing is set for September 6th.
