Sentencing of UOG professor delayed by one week


The former UOG Professor convicted of sexually assaulting three female students at a “Stroup” party held at his Ipan residence will not be sentenced tomorrow as scheduled.

Guam – Superior Court Judge Vernon Perez denied a motion by Ehlert’s legal counsel to push the sentencing hearing back by two weeks, however, he did reschedule the sentencing hearing to October 9 at 3:30 pm.

The additional time, according to Perez, is to allow the completion of the pre-sentence investigation report which includes contacting the three victims.

Ehlert has been on house arrest under a third party custodian since his conviction in July.

He faces a maximum of 8 years in prison for each count of criminal sexual conduct.
