BREAKING NEWS: Ogumoro found guilty of 7 corruption charges


Superior Court Associate Judge David A. Wiseman announced today, Tuesday, his verdict finding former Department of Public Safety deputy commissioner Ambrosio T. Ogumoro guilty of seven of nine corruption charges for his role in the shielding of then-attorney general Edward Buckingham from being served with penal summons in August 2012.
Wiseman found Ogumoro guilty of five counts of misconduct in public office, one count of obstructing justice: Interference with a law enforcement officer or witness, and one count of criminal coercion.
The judge, however, dismissed with prejudice the charges of conspiracy to commit obstructing justice: Interference with a law enforcement officer or witness, and misconduct in public office.
Dismiss with prejudice means the government cannot re-file the charges anymore.
Wiseman set the sentencing for March 23, 2016 at 1:30pm.
On Friday, a Superior Court jury rendered a unanimous verdict finding Ogumoro guilty of conspiracy to commit theft of services and theft of services pertaining to the same incident of shielding of Buckingham.
More details to follow.
