Charfauros' attorney motions for mistrial after officer's testimony

Posted: Updated:

Just hours into trial and defense counsel for former Guam Police Department Commander Mark Charfauros has motioned for a mistrial.

The motion follows a statement made by a GPD officer who testified he believed that Charfauros was involved with the Agat Blood Town gang.

Defense counsel Randy Cunliffe argues the statement was prejudicial and that the government failed to provide this in their discovery.

The trial is relative to an incident nearly two years ago involving police response to an Agat home for suspected illegal fireworks. Charfauros was seen on police body camera footage yelling at junior officers who were prompted to leave the scene.
