A habitual offender who was convicted of domestic violence was arrested Thursday afternoon for failing to turn himself to the Department of Corrections that day, pursuant to a Superior Court order.
Albert Pinaula Deleon Guerrero was arrested by Probation Officer Shirley Camacho-Ogumoro when he went to the Superior Court to follow his girlfriend who was seeking help from the Probation's Office.
The 30-year-old Deleon Guerrero was allegedly drunk at the time of his arrest. He was taken to court on Friday at 4pm.
Deleon Guerrero failed to turn himself in at DOC on Thursday pursuant to the court's Jan. 10, 2013, judgment and commitment order.
Camacho set a $1,000 cash bail and remanded the defendant back to DOC to start serving his one-year sentence.
Chief Public Defender Douglas Hartig was appointed to represent Deleon Guerrero in the contempt case.
Last Jan. 10, Camacho sentenced Deleon Guerrero to one year in prison for beating his girlfriend. His sentence will be served without the possibility of parole and work or weekend release.
Deleon Guerrero pleaded guilty to assault and battery. He is no stranger to crimes as he has five criminal convictions that include assault and battery and trafficking of a controlled substance. He also has 10 traffic cases and two temporary restraining orders in family court.
