Gov't continues pursuit of $30K to attorney

Guam - The federal government is still going after $30,000 that Kenrick Gajo paid Attorney Curtis Van De Veld at the time a warrant was executed at his family's auto body shop last year. The U.S. Attorney's Office filed a motion for an order to show cause as they contend Van De Veld should show why he should not be held in contempt of court for failing to turn over the money or show where it went.

Despite the magistrate judge finding no need to hold him in contempt, the government is seeking an order to show cause as they contend that money should have never been paid to Van De Veld and should have been forfeited because it is proceeds from illegal drug activity.

A hearing is scheduled for this Thursday.
