Guam - A plea agreement is still in the works for Irvin White III. He is the man who confessed to police that he and two others robbed the Yigo Bank of Guam last year.  White appeared in court this morning where Judge James Canto acknowledged receipt of the plea deal but requested more time to review it.

Prosecutor Brian Gallagher said, "Your Honor, this defendant has agreed to cooperate against his co-defendants. He cooperated in a trial that took place over the last couple of weeks and his cooperation was validated in that matter. So we have reason to believe he is being truthful with the people and will continue to be truthful with the people. 0101 so we think this plea agreement is justified."

White implicated himself as one of the men who entered the bank, his father Jackery White as the getaway driver, and Edward Baza as the gunman in the heist.  Although Gallagher could not confirm the specifics of the plea deal, it was noted in the trial against Tommy Afaisen last week that White would only serve 7.5 years behind bars verses 30 years for testifying against Afaisen.

With the help of White's testimony in that case relative to the Days Inn robbery, Afaisen was found guilty on all charges. White's next court hearing is a continued change of plea set for February 16.
