GUAM - The U.S. Attorney's Office opposes the release of Julian Gerald Robles who has raised concerns about the living conditions at the federal detention facility. As we reported Robles, through his attorney Howard Trapp, filed a motion for release alleging his constitutional rights have been violated. Robles claims his right to religious activities, fresh air and access to the law library are all being violated for what he alleged was punishment being served upon all the detainees in Hagatna. He also alleged unsafe and unsanitary conditions. Assistant U.S. Attorney Karon Johnson opposes Robles' release saying the numerous conditions which he claims constitute punishment are not outside of the contemporary standards of decency.

She argues relief is not release but an inquiry by the U.S. Marshal service that has been ordered to look into the living conditions. The Department of Corrections has denied any violation of rights or unsanitary and deplorable living conditions and has agreed to cooperate with the U.S. Marshals service.
