Guam - After spending the five months behind bars, Macrina Tedtaotao was released and placed on house arrest while she waits for her trial. The defense sought her release from federal custody, telling the court that conditions could be imposed to ensure she does not leave the island and shows up to court hearings while still being able to spend time with her children.
The judge granted the request placing her on house arrest and on electronic monitoring. Tedtaotao, her husband Eric, and her aunt Bertha Moore are scheduled to go to trial next month for allegedly smuggling in large quantities of crystal methamphetamine from the Philippines and distributing it on Guam.
