Guam – Whether or not there’s evidence from the FBI, the trial against the three men accused of beating DOC Inmate Justin Meno to near death will proceed.
The prosecution has one week to get the results of potential evidence against inmate Jeremiah Isezaki which could link him to the assault of Meno.
According to Assistant Attorney General Jeremy Kemper, the FBI is testing the clothing found in Isezaki’s cell, which may contain blood, to determine if the blood belongs to Meno. But the court is only providing a one week extension to the pre-trial conference that was originally was scheduled for Tuesday. Kemper says the FBI should have the results this week, however he must confirm if the testing has been completed.
Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo stressed the urgency of receiving the test results as he stated that the last pre-trial conference will be on January 25 as co-defendant Albert Santos has asserted his rights to a speedy trial.
Judge Bordallo further stated that trial must proceed with or without the evidence from the FBI.
