Guam - Antonio Augustino appeared in court today and decided to assert his right to a speedy trial. He is being held behind bars for robbing some tourists in Tumon with Paul Manglona Camacho.

The two were picked up twice in the last two months for separate robberies. Augustino's attorney had to withdraw from the case because the Public Defender's Office represents Camacho in other criminal cases.  The court appointed a new defense counsel and set a criminal trial for December 10.
