Posted on Jan 04 2012

Two suspects in the burglary of a bar in Garapan where two bottles of beer where stolen pleaded guilty yesterday and were each sentenced to 30 days in prison.

Christopher Raymond Kaipat, 23, and Mwoloscholopi Crisogino Litulumar Romolor, 24, pleaded guilty to theft.

Superior Court associate judge David A. Wiseman sentenced Kaipat and Romolor to six months in prison, all suspended except for 30 days.

Wiseman gave the defendants credit for the time they have already served in jail.

Kaipat will not serve further jail time as he has already spent 30 days in jail. Romolor, who was given three days credit for the time he has already served in jail, was ordered to start serving the remaining term of his sentence tomorrow, Friday, at 8am.

Wiseman required the two to each pay $100 fine, $25 court assessment fee, and probation fee.

Kaipat was ordered to perform 20 hours of community service, while Romolor was required to perform 50 hours.

According to the plea agreement, on Nov. 16, 2011, Kaipat and Romolor burglarized Round Two Bar on Nov. 16, 2011, on Saipan and stole two bottles of beer.

The Office of the Attorney General had charged Kaipat and Romolor with burglary, theft, conspiracy to commit burglary, and conspiracy to commit theft.

Assistant attorney general Tiberius D. Mocanu prosecuted the case.
