Guam - A Superior Court grand jury has indicted Kenrick Gajo on two counts of possession with the intent to distribute a Schedule II Controlled Substance as a 1st degree felony. According to the Attorney General's Office, Gajo faces a maximum of 40 years in jail if convicted on both counts.
The indictment states that Gajo possessed and intended to deliver crystal methamphetamine on December 31, 2009 and January 13, 2010. Gajo entered into a plea agreement, before he was ever charged with a crime back in January, when police executed a search warrant at his auto body shop. Gajo turned over more than $170,000 that he had hidden in tires at his shop to authorities admitting that he had received that money from drug proceeds.
The plea agreement that Gajo signed stated that $30,000 would go to pay his attorney at the time, Curtis Van De Veld. As well, the deal stated that Gajo agreed to cooperate with authorities and only be charged with the two counts of possession but not spend a single day in jail in exchange for his fully cooperation and assistance with providing authorities information about his drug sources and cohorts, information about police officers allegedly involved in drug trafficking, and information he told police he had about a 1998 murder of a woman.
The AG's Office also agreed that Gajo would receive immunity for any drug or drug-related criminal offense but no immunity of any sort for a homicide case.
