Guam - The trial of three public works employees has been delayed yet again.

Former DPW chief engineer Liberty Perez, Josephine Torres, and Ariel Evarola were scheduled to go to trial in April but scheduling conflicts with the court and the attorneys has pushed it back several months.

The three are accused of falsifying records in order to obtain more than $5,000 in overtime compensation for work the feds contend they never actually performed on federally funded projects.  A fourth co-defendant Danilo Galiza pleaded guilty to the charges. 

The trial was pushed back until August.
