Adelup names acting attorney general

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Although Attorney General Alicia Limtiaco was pushing for her chief prosecutor to take over when she leaves, it seems Governor Felix Camacho has opted to select someone else.  According to Adelup the selection of John Weisenberger was the best choice.

Governor's Deputy Chief of Staff Shawn Gumataotao, "It's a very great opportunity for John...he brings over 37 years of experience to the Attorney General's Office, he's been there with his current role this is his third stint with the Attorney General's Office."

Weisenberger is an advocate for juvenile justice and is an active prosecutor in the Attorney General's Civil Division.  Weisenberger is also the former head of the Office of the Public Guardian.  Gumataotao continued, "He will continue the work of Alicia Limtiaco going into the end of the year, and once a new elected attorney general has been chosen by the people of Guam, then we'll have that change

"John will bring us stability and leadership as a former public guardian, he's well aware of the issue that face the people of Guam and we're very excited about the appointment today."

Weisenberger will officially take over Monday when Limtiaco is officially sworn in as the U.S. Attorney for Guam and the CNMI.
