Guam - A Department of Public Health and Social Services employee is in federal custody, accused of having sexual relations with a female minor in Rota. Melvin David Diaz appeared in the District Court today after a complaint was filed against him in the CNMI District Court. 

The 49-year-old Mongmong resident is accused of traveling from Guam to Rota last September where he allegedly had sexual relations with a 15-year-old female, impregnating her. According to court documents, the FBI interviewed the minor's family in Rota who said they were aware of the pregnancy and the illegal relationship between the minor and Diaz. 

The Public Health employee was ordered to appear in the CNMI to answer to charges of travel with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct and enticement of a minor.

KUAM News has confirmed that Diaz is assigned to Public Health's Department of Public Welfare in Mangilao.
