Share

The Superior Court has scheduled a bench trial for a man accused of shattering a Commonwealth Ports Authority police officer’s vehicle window.

Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph Camacho has scheduled the bench trial of Shanguo Zhang, 43, for Oct. 18 at 10am.

On top of the bench trial, Camacho also scheduled a probation revocation hearing for Zhang’s previous case, where he pleaded guilty to spray painting a police K-9 vehicle parked at the Department of Public Safety central office.

According to court documents, Zhang, a Chinese citizen, is a habitual offender with most of his cases involving vandalism and disturbing the peace.

Zhang is one of those individuals who hold a daily protest against the Chinese Communist Party at the Civic Center across the judicial building in Susupe.

Back on June 15, Zhang, allegedly shattered with a rock the glass window of a CPA Ports Police car.

Back in March, Camacho sentenced Zhang to six months in prison, with the first 15 days to be served day for day without the possibility of parole, early release, weekend release or other similar programs after the defendant pleaded guilty to tampering with a vehicle.

Camacho gave Zhang 12 days’ credit for time served, but the defendant was also placed on a six-month probation after serving his sentence.

In July 2020, Zhang was arrested for criminal mischief and disturbing the peace after damaging the glass doors at the governor’s office.
