Guam - DOC officer Joseph Santiago is being held behind bars on $50,000 cash bail accused of sexually assaulting two female minors.

He appeared before Magistrate's Judge Alberto Tolentino today. "The court notes that you are a law enforcement officer with the Department of Corrections and unlike all residents of Guam however it's got to balance that with the nature and seriousness of the alleged offenses. First degree criminal sexual conduct if you are convicted is a minimum mandatory fifteen years to life in prison," he said.

The CSC complaint was filed in Las Vegas, Nevada in November of last year and forwarded to GPD.

As we reported yesterday, Santiago has been employed at DOC for the last 17 years. As a result of the arrest, he has been placed on administrative leave.
