Guam - Although he was ordered to immediately stop practicing law, Attorney Danilo Aguilar and the Guam Bar Ethics Committee have until Friday to explain why all of the filings in his ethics matter should not be made public. Aguilar recently pleaded guilty to two counts of money laundering and admitted that he withdrew more than $184,000 on two occasions last May in the Northern Mariana Islands that he knew were proceeds of mail fraud.
He received 60 months of probation and an aggressive restitution repayment schedule. According to the Supreme Court of Guam's order, the parties have until Friday to show why the filings in the case should not be unsealed.
