Guam - A civilian volunteer police reservist is being held behind bars on $50,000 cash bail.  James John Esperon is charged with 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct for allegedly raping a female minor back in 2012 and fondling her on two other occasions.  He is being represented by Attorney Curtis Van De Veld, who was not available for today's hearing so the magistrate hearing was moved to Friday.

Judge Alberto Tolentino said, "While the case is pending you are to have no contact with the alleged victim." Assistant attorney general Gabrielle Rossi added, "Your Honor, we would also like a stay away from the victims brother and mother as well because the reports were made to them."

Esperon has been suspended from the Police Reserve Program pending an Internal Affairs investigation.  His hearing is scheduled for 11am Friday.
