Guam - A jury has found former police officer Roy Pablo guilty of all charges. He was on trial for manufacturing a Scheduled I Controlled Substance, possession with intent to deliver, conspiracy to manufacture a Controlled I Substance, possession of more than an ounce of marijuana and child abuse. Pablo already pleaded guilty to official misconduct. The guilty verdict followed closing arguments this morning. While defense attorney Terrance Timblin asked the court for leniency, Assistant Attorney General James Collins pointed out conflicting statements Pablo made when he was arrested verses what he testified during the course of the trial.
Timblin said, "You now know that Mr. Pablo has made some mistakes. He has paid for those mistakes by being fired from the Guam Police Department. He will pay when he is sentenced for the offense of official misconduct which he has already plead guilty to we also acknowledge that he is guilty for possession of less than one ounce of marijuana. Take a look at this statement that he provided. Read it. See what it says. If you read this statement and you believe this statement, you will find him guilty of all the crimes for which we have charged."
Pablo was arrested last year along with his common law wife Ahrum Kim and Stephen. The three were accused of operating a fully functional marijuana grow operation in their Dededo home. In trial this week he not only said he liked to smoke weed but also testified that he didn't sell it but did witness his common law wife deal drugs. He said her profits were used to pay utility bills.
