Rector asks court to drop criminal charges

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Guam Federation of Teachers president Matt Rector has asked a Superior Court judge to dismiss criminal charges filed against him.  Rector appeared before Judge Michael Bordallo this morning as his attorney presented arguments for a motion to dismiss. The defense alleges the Attorney General's Office failed to file charging documents. 

Rector faces misdemeanor charges of making a false statement under oath and unsworn falsification.

The charges stem from a story KUAM News first broke about rector failing to disclose a burglary conviction in the state of 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.

Judge Bordallo took the motion under advisement with a decision to be issued at a later date.
