Blue House sentencing delayed; defense files motion for new trial

Posted: Updated:

Guam - This Friday's sentencing hearing for two police officers convicted in the Blue House Lounge case has been vacated as the defense has filed a number of motions that must first be addressed by the court.  Among the motions is one seeking a new trial, alleging questionable prosecutorial conduct throughout the trial. 

Additionally they argue that none of the potential jurors in the pool had escaped exposure to the media coverage of the trial and some admitted they had already made up their minds but promised to keep an open mind during the trial anyway.

Anthony Quenga and David Manila remain behind bars after they were convicted of various criminal charges including prostitution, kidnapping, and criminal sexual conduct. The court will hear the motions on November 22.
