Guam - Tommy Afaisen was found guilty on all charges. He was on trial for the Days Inn robbery in December 2014. He was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, robbery, theft of a motor vehicle, and terrorizing. After signing off on a plea deal, his co-defendant, Irvin White III testified against him. White confessed to being the getaway driver.

The two robbed the Days Inn, and then took police on a high speed chase through Tamuning. White testified that Afaisen was the gunman and shot at police during the hot pursuit.  During the trial the prosecution used surveillance video from the hotel to show that the gunman was left handed. Afaisen is left handed.

The defense on the other hand argued they got the wrong guy and that Afaisen just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. The defense said Afaisen was a homeless man who was sleeping in the abandoned Tamuning home police raided in search of the robbery suspects. The defense also tried to discredit White, who allegedly was under the influence of $100 worth of crystal meth on the day of the robbery.
