A woman who is on supervised release in federal court for bank fraud will remain behind bars for another 30 days as more time is needed to try and get her into treatment.
Amelia Tedtaotao’s court-appointed attorney Jay Arriola recently inherited the case from the Federal Public Defender and requested for a continuance as he anticipates his client will be able to get an appointment with the Light House Recovery Center and Oasis Empowerment Center, two drug rehabilitation programs.
District Court Magistrate Judge Michael Bordallo, granted a 30-day continuance for arguments on disposition and continued answering.
Tedtaotao will answer to allegations that she violated terms of her supervised release on July 3rd when she tested positive for methamphetamine. Judge Bordallo states that Tedtaotao admitted to all violations at the last hearing. However, the July 3rd violation was not raised at the time.
Tedtaotao has been in detention since a warrant was returned in July. She is waiting for arguments to be made on a petition for revocation of supervised release as a result of 17 violations in five months.
