Guam - Three former Department of Public Works employees are sentenced in District Court on Friday.

 Liberty Perez and Josephine Torres had pled guilty to misprision of a felony for failing to report a fraud they allegedly witnessed, while Danilo Galizo pled guilty to falsifying records. All three were each sentenced to five years probation.

The case was related to overtime compensation the federal government contends they never actually performed on federally funded projects.

In addition to probation, each is required to pay the money back to the Federal Highway Administration. Perez must pay $9,000, Torres $7,500, and Galiza $18,000.

Also indicted in the same case but acquitted of the charges was Ariel Evarola. Evarola was found not guilty by a federal jury.
