Guam - Defense Attorney Randy Cunliffe motioned for judgment of acquittal for two of the three charges against his client, Customs Major Philip Taijeron, Jr. In proceedings today, Cunliffe argued that prosecution failed to prove charges of disorderly conduct and harassment.

Prior to the motion, the court heard from Guam Fire Department spokesperson Lieutenant Phillip Camacho who authenticated the 911 call made that day and Untalan Middle School employee Tina Cruz who made the 911 call. In the background of the telephone conversation, Taijeron's voice is audible yelling curse words in Chamorro.

Taijeron was charged with terrorizing, disorderly conduct, and harassment for an incident back in 2012 when he allegedly rushed to his daughter's school upset about an alleged bullying incident.

The court's decision on the motion was not available as of news time.

Jury trial will continue tomorrow at 1:30 in the afternoon.
