Tenorio pleads not guilty in terrorizing case


Charissa Tenorio was arrested one day before her brother, Joshua Tenorio, announced his bid for lt. governor.

Guam – The girlfriend of a former Department of Corrections officer, accused of threatening a witness in her boyfriend’s case, is maintaining her innocence.  Charissa Tenorio is accused of terrorizing a Guam Police Department informant who she allegedly believes turned her boyfriend, Frankie Rosalin, into authorities.

According to court documents, the charges stem from the ongoing case against her Rosalin. The complaint states that Tenorio approached a man at the Micronesia Mall food court and confronted him about the involvement of his close friend identified as J.R.R. in the DOC investigation. Court documents also state that Tenorio confronted J.R.R. about the DOC case through a phone call monitored by GPD officers.

In court on Wednesday, Tenorio pleaded not guilty to charges of witness intimidation by extortion as a third degree felony, witness tampering as a misdemeanor and harassment as a petty misdemeanor.

Her next court date is on December 1.
