Judge grants dismissal of demotion appeal motion for Mark Charfauros

Posted: May 10, 2018 5:14 PM Updated:

It's at least one victory for a former GPD colonel fighting to get his job back on the force. Superior Court Judge Vern Perez granted a motion to dismiss the demotion appeal against Mark Charfauros. The Civil Service Commission voted in Charfauros' favor last August.

The government then wished to call  Charfauros first to testify during that appeal hearing, but CSC protocol requires the employee testify last. That's what brought the issue before the court.

As reported,  Charfauros was demoted then fired from the force after an incident in Agat that happened in December 2016. He was seen on police body camera footage yelling at junior officers who were responding to a report of fireworks at a home in the village.

Charfauros is facing three misdemeanor charges for official misconduct and obstructing governmental functions.

He is set to go back to court for his criminal case on May 22.
