Guam – A retrial in the case against a woman accused of conspiring to distribute methamphetamine will not be moving forward, as the defendant has accepted a plea deal with the government.
Corinna M Concepcion was set to serve a 14-year prison sentence after her initial conviction on one count conspiracy to distribute meth and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering. But that conviction was overturned after the government conceded errors were made during the November 2014 trial in federal court.
Concepcion was one of 12 individuals indicted in the case in which nine of the co-defendant entered into plea agreements.
Today, Concepcion pleaded guilty to the drug charge and as a result the government dismissed the current indictment against her. In addition to this, District Court Chief Judge Francis Tydingco-Gatewood lifted the house arrest condition imposed on Concepcion to allow her to find work.
A sentencing hearing is set for July 9th.
