Guam - Chad Desoto was sentenced to three life sentences. He appeared before Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola this morning. Desoto was convicted in August for the tragedy in Tumon that occurred in February of last year. He had pleaded not guilty by reason of mental illness. In February 2013 Desoto drove a car down a crowded sidewalk in Tumon. He crashed into the ABC store underneath the Outrigger Resort, jumped out and began stabbing people randomly. In total three people died and eleven others were injured. Prior to his sentencing statements were read from his mother, father and girlfriend requesting for mercy and forgiveness. Desoto also spoke during his sentencing. He blamed his mental illness for what he did. On Friday, the Court will address contempt of court charges against Desoto's cousin Michelle Fatovic and his girlfriend Reanne Acasio. Department of Corrections phone records show the two spoke with Desoto even though they were ordered by the court not to have contact. Desoto, meanwhile is scheduled to appear back in on court on November 19th for a restitution hearing.
