No jail time for another DOC officer

Former DOC officer Frankie Rosalin pleaded guilty to official misconduct as a misdemeanor for his role in the smuggling of contraband into the island's prison facility.

Case closed…at least for one of the DOC officers implicated in the conspiracy to smuggle contraband into the Department of Corrections.

Last August, former DOC officer Frankie Rosalin pleaded guilty to official misconduct as a misdemeanor for his role in the smuggling of contraband into the island’s prison facility. He was sentenced the same day.

In court this morning, Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola made it official. “At this time, being that the other defendants have already pleaded, I will sentence him according to the plea agreement,” Sukola said.

But with Rosalin having already completed all conditions of probation, Judge Sukola closed his case without any objections. In response to the order, Rosalin said he feels good about being given the chance to move on with his life.

Like other DOC officers convicted in the case, Rosalin avoided jail time and was sentenced to 1-year probation. As part of the deal, he was let off the hook for conspiracy to commit promotion of major prison contraband.

Convicted of official misconduct, Rosalin is ineligible to gain employment with the Government of Guam.
