BREAKING NEWS: Ex-Labor chief Deleon Guerrero acquitted


Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph N. Camacho acquitted today, Friday, former Labor secretary Edith Eleanor Deleon Guerrero of all three traffic charges filed against her.


Camacho granted assistant public defender Heather Zona’s motion for judgment of acquittal as to the charges of using a government vehicle that had tinting on its windows, that was not clearly marked as a government vehicle, and did not bear government license plates.


Zona, counsel for Deleon Guerrero, made the motion after assistant attorney general Jonathan Robert Glass Jr. rested the government’s case after its sixth witness completed her testimony.


Camacho said the government has failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Deleon Guerrero committed the offenses.


He adjudged Deleon Guerrero not guilty of all charges.


“The court can only follow the law as it is written,” the judge said.


More details to follow.
