Guam - Eight months after he was nominated by President Barack Obama, Judiciary of Guam Chief Marshal Frank Leon Guerrero has been confirmed by the Senate's Committee on Judiciary to be the U.S. Marshal for Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Leon Guerrero, who is currently off-island, confirms with KUAM News that he was informed of his confirmation by the U.S. Marshals Service out of Washington, DC. 

Leon Guerrero previously served as Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo's constituent services director before taking on the role as the top brass at the Judiciary. He has an extensive background in law enforcement having served 25 years as a police officer and retiring as a police major from the Guam Police Department.  Now with the Senate Judiciary Committee's unanimous vote, his nomination will head to the entire senate for a vote.
