Guam lawyer David J. Lujan is joining attorney Joaquin DLG. Torres for the defense of former acting CNMI Division of Fish and Wildlife director Raymond Borja Roberto, who was indicted on Friday over allegations he paid for sex with three female minors.
Lujan informed the U.S. District Court for the NMI yesterday that he will be co-counsel with Torres on behalf of the 40-year-old Roberto.
Lujan requested the court to also forward to him all orders, pleadings, and documents regarding the case.
The Guam lawyer is known for representing defendants in high-profile criminal cases in the CNMI.
The indictment charged Roberto with one count of coercion and enticement of a minor. He pleaded not guilty.
The jury trial will be on Nov. 18, 2013.
Federal Bureau of Investigation agents arrested Roberto on Aug. 31 on charges related to the case against firefighter Richard S. Benavente and suspected pimp Annette N. Basa.
