Steven Albertson sentenced to life

Guam - Steven Albertson was sentenced to life in prison with the eligibility of parole after 25 years. Albertson is already serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for a double-murder he committed more than 20 years ago. 

In May of last year, Albertson killed fellow minimum security inmate Arlen Feranco in another inmate's cell.  He told Department of Corrections officers the two had gotten into a fight and admitted to beating and killing Feranco.

In addition to the life sentence, Albertson was also ordered to pay more than $5,200 in restitution.

The Attorney General's Office meanwhile issued a statement following Albertson's sentencing today: The Office of the Attorney General believes that this sentence demonstrates that even inmates in the Department of Corrections can be victims of crimes and deserve no lesser attention than that of any other citizen of Guam.  The suffering of the families of those victims in the Department is just as real as the suffering of anyone else whose family member was senselessly murdered.  The Office of the Attorney General enforces the laws regardless of who the victim or the defendant is.
