Guam - A superceding indictment was handed down against Alvin Gerard San Nicolas whose criminal sexual conduct convictions were recently thrown out. San Nicolas has asserted his right to a speedy trial but will have to appear back in court next week to answer to the new charges.

He was convicted of 16 counts of criminal sexual conduct for sexually assaulting a female minor repeatedly while her mother was deployed and forcing her to smoke methamphetamine. 

The Supreme Court found that when the indictment was amended, new charges that were not found by the grand jury were created and the conviction was reversed. 

He is scheduled to appear back in court on the 20th of this month.
