Guam - Captain Mark Charfauros didn't appear in court today, but his two attorneys did. Attorneys Randy Cunliffe and Curtis Van De Veld waived their client's appearance at today's arraignment hearing and pleaded not guilty to the charges of solicitation to commit assault and official misconduct.
Charfauros is accused of soliciting Officer Burt Carbullido to "deck a guy" in Yona. The former senator has asserted his right to a speedy trial and is scheduled to appear back in court next Wednesday for a criminal trial setting.
He remains on administrative leave with pay from the Guam Police Department.
