Guam - Former Blue House Lounge owner Song Ja Cha and her workers Freda Eseun and Saknin Weria will go to trial in November on local charges. Cha is currently appealing her federal conviction and life sentence after being found guilty for bringing young Chuukese women to Guam and forcing them to work and prostitute themselves without compensation.

Eseun and Weria received credit for time served after taking plea deals with the feds. As a result of the federal conviction, local charges of compelling and promoting prostitution were dismissed in local court but aggravated assault and felonious restraint charges still stand.

Jury selection and trial has been scheduled for November 21.
