Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Attorney General's Office has until Monday to file any objections they have with Superior Court Judge Arthur Barcinas hearing Police Captain Mark Charfauros' criminal case. As we first reported ,the judge tried to remove himself from the case because of his personal relationship with the former senator, but the acting presiding judge found it wasn't sufficient grounds for recusal. 

The judge will hear the recusal issue on Monday morning.  Charfauros meanwhile was a no-show agreeing to have his attorney act on his behalf.  The police captain is accused of soliciting another officer to commit assault.

He has denied the allegations.
