Guam - Four defendants named in a major drug ring between Guam and Nevada are likely to head to trial in October.

Counsel for Francisco Arias, David Quinata, Eder Cortez-Zelaya, and Corinna Concepcion appeared in federal court this morning to request that trial be delayed due to scheduling conflicts and the need for a Spanish translator for Arias. Counsel noted that Arias and Quinata are anticipated to enter plea agreements. A total of twelve defendants were named in the indictment. Several have already pleaded out confessing their roles in the drug ring to bring crystal meth from Nevada to Guam. Trial is set for October 21st.
