Drug trafficking trial delayed, defense needs time to review the case

Posted: Updated:

 


GUAM - The trial of Eric and Macrina Tedtaotao and Bertha Moore has been delayed two months. During a status conference late Thursday attorney Cynthia Ecube who represents Moore, asked for some additional time to review over the discovery. Moore, who has been a fugitive for months, turned herself in to the U.S. embassy in the Philippines several weeks ago and returned to Guam to answer to the charges. There is some indication that she may seek a plea deal and cooperate with federal authorities. Moore was caught in possession of a substantial amount of crystal methamphetamine. The feds allege the Tedtaotao's worked with Moore to purchase and smuggle the drugs back to Guam for distribution. All three remain in custody and a pre-trial conference is scheduled for August 14th with trial to begin on August 20th. The Tedtaotao couple opposed any delays in the trial. Because Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood will be presiding over another jury trial, CNMI Judge Ramona Manglona may preside over the case.
