Court drops remaining charges against ex-CNMI top cop

7:51 pm on 4 July 2016

The remaining charges against former Northern Marianas police commissioner, James Deleon Guerrero, have been dropped by the territory's Superior Court.

A judge says he sees no probable cause relating to the charge of conspiracy to commit sexual abuse of a minor in the first degree.

The judge says the government produced no evidence that Mr Deleon Guerrero conspired to specifically have sexual contact with a minor.

In a separate order, the judge said he also found no probable cause for two counts of misconduct in public office.

In May, a charge of sexual abuse of a minor in the first degree was also dismissed.
