Guam - After a five-day jury trial in the District Court, In Hyuk Kim (aka, "Dominic") was found guilty of conspiracy to commit alien smuggling.  Kim was charged with unlawfully and knowingly agreeing with another to smuggle aliens into Guam for commercial advantage and financial gain. 

According to KUAM News archives, Kim worked with Mi Kyung Bosley to bring in Korean women to Guam through the Guam Visa Waiver Program allowing them to overstay their visas and work at nightclubs and bars.  Kim is also accused of falsifying departure records so it appeared to the INS that the women had left Guam.

A federal judge threw out three counts of alien smuggling against the Korean Airlines employee who was accused of abusing the Guam Tourist Visa Waiver Program after the court determined there was prosecutorial vindictiveness.

Kim is scheduled to be sentenced on June 15 in the District Court and faces up to five years behind bars.
