Guam - Supreme Court justices have upheld decisions made by the trial court in the criminal case against Jimmy Aguon Manley. The former corrections officer pled guilty to vehicular homicide and five counts of aggravated assault.

Manley was drag racing under the influence of alcohol when he crashed into a pickup truck.  The crash resulted in the death of 13-year-old Sharleen Sudo Aguon and seriously injured five other people.  Manley was sentenced to 14 years behind bars, but appealed his conviction alleging that the plea agreement he signed was improper and that he shouldn't have been sentenced for separate aggravated assault convictions.

Guam's high court, however, reviewed the case and affirmed the Superior Court's judgment.
