Guam - An alleged accomplice to a 16-year-old accused of armed robbery made his plea in the Superior Court of Guam today. Derek James Santos pleaded not guilty to two counts of second degree robbery.  Last month he admitted to police that he drove a male minor - Francis Taisipic who is being charged as an adult - to the Ebenezer Store and the Mermaid Tavern for the purpose of robbing individuals. 

Taisipic and his guardians, Eddie and Josephine Castro await a preliminary hearing scheduled for Friday. Santos meanwhile remains behind bars awaiting a criminal trial setting, which is scheduled for August 9 before Superior Court Judge Vern Perez.
