Guam - A convicted sex offender will spend the rest of his life behind bars and never have the possibility of getting out. In May Nicholas Camaddu was found guilty of sexually abusing three female minors, who were known to him, over several years. One victim testified that the abuse began back when she was in kindergarten and came forward when she was 11 because she thought she was pregnant.
The prosecutor asked for life in prison without the possibility of parole, saying Camaddu has a chronic history of criminality including a previous criminal sexual conduct conviction and 35 years of arrests and drug, robbery and firearms charges.
Elizabeth Visiliades told the court that he was an "opportunist" who took advantage of his victims and cannot be rehabilitated and put back into the community. Camaddu, upon the advice of counsel, did not show any remorse or make any comment before sentencing.
Judge Anita Sukola imposed the life sentence without parole as well as a $10,000 fine. Camaddu must also register as a Level One Sex Offender.
Alternate Public Defender Ana Gayle says her client will likely file a notice of appeal upon signing of the judgment.
