Guam - A local firefighter continues to wait for a trial date for allegedly fondling and raping a female minor. Dean Ray Quinata pleaded not guilty to the charges and the defense has presented statements from multiple witnesses who vouch for his whereabouts during the alleged rape.
A status hearing was continued until November 26 as Quinata waits to see if the prosecution will dismiss the charges based on the witness statements.
Quinata remains on leave from the Guam Fire Department.
