Former Blue House brothel owner appointed 10th attorney

Posted: Updated:

 


GUAM - Despite repeated efforts by the Superior Court, former Blue House lounge owner Song Ja Cha can't seem to get an attorney who will represent her.
 
The court recently appointed her tenth attorney, James Baldwin, but Baldwin appeared in court on an ex-parte application to withdraw today.  Because the list of criminal defense attorneys for indigent defense has already been exhausted, the court is having to resort to the Guam Bar Association listing selecting attorneys in alphabetical order. Attorney Ladd Baumann has been appointed as Cha's new attorney and a hearing is still scheduled for July first. Meanwhile the Guam Supreme Court is expected to issue an expedited briefing schedule for Cha's co-defendant, police officer David Q. Manila, who has filed an appeal of the Superior Court's denial of his third bail modification motion. Additionally Manila filed a writ of mandamus alleging he and Anthony Quenga's speedy trial rights have been violated.
