Guam - Mateo Sardoma, Jr. will ask to be released from jail this week during a detention hearing. Sardoma and nine others who were believed to be part of a major drug trafficking conspiracy were recently indicted by a federal grand jury accused of organizing a continuing criminal enterprise and conspiring to distribute hundreds of grams of crystal methamphetamine.

He is also charged in a separate case for his alleged involvement in the kidnapping and torture of a man he believed had stolen one pound of the drug Ice from his home.

Federal prosecutors meanwhile have raised concerns about the safety of cooperating witnesses asking the court to allow them not to disclose that information until closer to the trial date. 

The detention hearing is scheduled for this Thursday.
