Muna is a veteran police officer with 18 years on the force.
Guam – The police officer who was accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl appeared before Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo to answer to the charges against him.
Officer James Norbert Muna pleaded not guilty to the criminal sexual conduct charges.
Muna was arrested earlier this month, after Guam Police Department detectives followed up on a sexual assault complaint filed with Healing Hearts Crisis Center.
Court documents state that Muna touched the girl on one occasion and digitally penetrated her in two separate incidences.
In court on Wednesday, Muna asserted his rights to a speedy trial which has been set for October 3 at 2 pm before Judge Alberto Lamorena.
