Drug Court to hold second session with 4 applicants


The U.S. District Court for the NMI’s Drug Offender Re-entry Program will hold this afternoon, Tuesday, its second session with four applicants.

The Drug Court Team will hold a meeting at 2pm in the second floor jury assembly room at Horiguchi Building in Garapan.

At 3pm, the Drug Offender Re-entry Program session will commence.

The session was held last Jan. 26. U.S. District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona presided over the session.

The four applicants to the program are former U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer Bob Hajime Deleon Guerrero Yamagishi, former police officer Florencio Q. Richards, Vicente Aldan Sablan, and Francisco Nakatsukasa Basa.

The Federal Drug Offender Re-entry Program is a post-incarceration cooperative effort program of the U.S. District Courts, U.S. Probation Office, Federal Public Defender, and U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The program provides treatment and sanctions alternatives to address re-integration into the community for non-violent, substance abuse offenders released from federal prison.
