Guam - Two women have been arrested and charged for allegedly helping fugitive James Corpuz elude law enforcement authorities. Corpuz has been wanted by local authorities since December. He was picked up by a task force comprised of local and federal law enforcement authorities Sunday morning in Yigo.

34-year-old Jennifer Sanchez is accused of bringing food to Corpuz on multiple occasions, as well as calling him and texting him while 18-year-old Keolani Sanchez allegedly spent time with Corpuz and in one instance rented a hotel room in Tamuning.  Prior to his capture on Valentine's Day, Sanchez went to the ranch where he was hiding in Mataguac and had sex with him.

Both women were charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution and obstructing government functions.

Corpuz was wanted by police for questioning on two criminal sexual conduct complaints. He also had a criminal felony bench warrant involving a case in which he was charged with 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct as a 1st degree felony in the superior court.
