Accused of plotting to murder a police officer nearly 8 years ago, Jeremiah Isezaki continues to maintain his innocence following a superseding indictment.
Guam – Isezaki is one of three men who were accused in Superior Court of plotting to kill the police officer who pulled Isezaki over and caught him with the illegal firearm that landed him in the hands of the federal court.
In 2013, accusations of perjury against one of the jurors in the trial called for a new trial to be set. While the new trial was supposed to begin on January 17, both the defense and prosecution have requested the trial be delayed as Isezaki is already set for trial in the case involving the beating of former DOC inmate Justin Meno. In addition to this, the defense has stated to the court that a witness residing in Washington will need adequate notification in order to fly to Guam. Meanwhile the government has notified the court that there is 60 pages of additional discovery containing potentially exculpatory evidence from the grand jury. The government further stated that they are still negotiating with Isezaki and believes progress is being made for a potential resolution.
The next hearing is set for March 13th.
