Guam - They were set for trial in federal court this week but just yesterday Department of Public Works staffers Liberty Perez and Josephine Torres entered plea agreements admitting guilt to misprison of felony or deliberate concealment of a felony.

Perez and Torres along with Ariel Evarola and Danilo Galiza 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.

Outlined in their plea deals, Perez and Torres are expected to testify against Evarola who will proceed with trial this week while Galiza already pleaded guilty to the charges.

Perez and Torres could face three years imprisonment and large fines. Their sentencing is set for December.
