Guam - Former Guam Chamber of Commerce bookkeeper Nicole Nededog appeared in the District Court today expecting to plead guilty to a single count of bank fraud. The hearing was continued until Tuesday afternoon because the plea agreement must be amended.
Nededog was indicted on 90 counts of bank fraud, accused of altering chamber checks and embezzling more than $351,000. According to the plea agreement, she admitted to writing checks that were drawn on the chamber's operating and armed forces committee accounts. She was able to hide the scheme until the bank notified the organization that one of the accounts was overdrawn.
The change of plea is now scheduled for tomorrow at 1pm.
