Guam - Two of the teens charged for an alleged carjacking and attempted kidnapping case pleaded not guilty in the Superior Court today. Jessie Nojadera waived his rights to a speedy trial and will go back to court on April 11 for a criminal trial setting.
Justin Cruz however asserted his rights to a speedy trial and will have a trial setting on February 28. David Pocaigue, Jr's arraignment was continued until March 2, as he had to obtain alternative legal counsel due to a conflict he has with the Public Defender for a separate pending case.
The three, along with a 15-year-old girl allegedly beat the victim, put him in the trunk and took his car weeks ago in Dededo. They face up to ten years behind bars as well as a $10,000 fine each.
