Rector appears in court, pleads not guilty

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Guam Federation of Teachers president Matt Rector appeared in the Superior Court this morning pleading not guilty to misdemeanor charges of making a false statement under oath and unsworn falsification.  The charges stemmed from a story KUAM News first broke about Rector failing to disclose a burglary conviction in California.

When the former senator applied for a firearms identification card and a concealed firearms permit, he answered "no" when asked whether he'd been arrested and/or convicted of a felony crime.

Today he requested a jury of six and waived his right to a speedy trial.  He was released on his own recognizance with a $1,000 performance bond.  A criminal trial setting is scheduled for August 3 before Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo.
