Two of five men in Dededo gang rape sentenced

Guam - It was back in December 2013 two minor girls ages 11 and 14 were raped in the jungle area of Santa Ana, Dededo.

In total five men were arrested for the crime: Hen Henry, Gibson Billias, Betewen Henry, Oratuch Henry and Helpme Roby.

While Helpme Roby opted to face a jury and was found guilty on all eleven charges of criminal sexual conduct, the remaining defendants entered plea deals with the government - two of whom were sentenced today in Judge Arthur Barcinas' courtroom.

Oratuch Henry will walk away a free man as he received a one year suspended sentence with two years probation. According to his plea deal, he had the least involvement in the case as he pleaded guilty to destruction of evidence. As we previously reported, Oratuch Henry was not at the scene at the time of the rape, but found pictures of the act on his iPad. He immediately deleted those photos, which the FBI testified they could not retrieve.

Meanwhile, according to his plea deal Betewen Henry will spend the next fifteen years behind bars for the rape and will receive credit for time served.

His co-defendants, Gibson Billias and Hen Henry are also anticipated to be sentenced to 15 years as outlined by their plea deals. Their sentencing hearings are scheduled for February 18.

As for Helpme Roby, his attorney Terence Timblin previously stated to KUAM News that he will request the mandatory minimum of 15 years for his client and that "his client should not be punished for exercising his rights to go to trial and having his guilt determined by a jury."

Roby's sentencing is slated for January 28.

    Government wants full payment from Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho

    It's a $750 wedding ring, but its significance and meaning, priceless. While Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho is serving life behind bars, the government argues he's not being held fully accountable for his crimes. Five years ago, Camacho kidnapped and raped Monique Baza after she made a quick run to the bakery for bread. Though it's a minimal amount for the ring that was never recovered, defense has motioned to waive restitution.  The government, in its response this week, argued ...More >>
