The three police officers and two women accused of promoting and compelling prostitution at the Blue House lounge-brothel in Tamuning appeared together in court this morning for the first time since the indictment was unsealed yesterday.
Another supervisor, Saknin Weria, appeared in court with Cha and Eseun. However, her name doesn’t appear on the indictment.
The five defendants were set to be arraigned this morning by Judge Anita Sukola at the Superior Court of Guam. They were expected to enter pleas in their respective charges.
However, F. Randall Cunliffe, the attorney representing Song Ja Cha, objected to the use of media cameras in the courtroom. As a result, proceedings are postponed until this afternoon.
