Guam - The Supreme Court of Guam has reversed the dismissal of a motion filed by former attorney Haim Habib, who is serving a sentence for criminal sexual conduct.  The high court determined that the trial court erred in declining to hear Habib's motion to set aside the judgment in his case. 

Habib was sentenced to two seven-year sentences to run concurrently for first- and third-degree criminal sexual conduct.  Habib claims the Superior Court erred by increasing his sentence other than what was stated in his plea agreement.

The high court agreed and sent the case back to the Superior Court to hear his motion.
