Public defender Nisperos bids farewell to Guam

by Nick Delgado

Guam - After taking the helm three years ago, Public Defenders Service Corporation Executive Director Mike Nisperos said his goodbyes today.  He says he's enjoyed working with the staff at his office as well as the court and leaves the island with many memories but his most memorable, was handling the trial of Isaac Kaipat that resulted in an acquittal.

"I haven't had a chance to try a case since I left Saipan and it was good to get back in a courtroom, back in the saddle and to be able to make sure that an innocent man gets free," he said.

Richard Dirks will be the acting director beginning monday.  Nisperos meanwhile will be returning to his home in Oakland, California before taking up a teaching position.
