Guam - The son of a U.S. District Court judge who presided over the federal Blue House Lounge human trafficking on Guam was killed in a hit-and-run crash in California. According to CBSLA, David Pregerson, 23, was found in the bushes at about 3:20 a.m. Friday, Los Angeles police officials said. When he was found, he was in critical condition, police said.
A watch commander confirmed Pregerson died Tuesday. A spokesman for U.S. 9th Circuit Court confirmed he was the son of U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson and the grandson of Harry Pregerson, a sitting judge on the appellate circuit.
Judge Dean Pregerson spent several months on Guam during the Blue House Lounge trial against Song Ja Cha and had previously served as an assistant public defender on Guam.
