BREAKING NEWS: Sealed federal case filed in CNMI

By Jacob Nakamura


(Tumon, Guam) The US Attorney has filed within the past hour a sealed case in the United States District Court for the Northern Mariana Islands that could be related to the ongoing grand jury investigations into CNMI Governor Ralph Torres, his family and the casino.


Case 1:20-mc-6 is currently under seal. This is what is considered a "miscellaneous case" and could be anything from a sealed criminal complaint, sealed warrant or sealed notice of violation of federal tax laws.


This is a developing story.

I wonder what part Biktot (Victor Hocog) has in this.

With a defense lawyer that expensive, and flying in from New York, Ralph will be begging for a plea deal. The only plea concession the prosecutor might give him is not running up a million dollar bill with his lawyer.

5-7 years sets an example, saves money (it will be a plea agreement) and the feds get to say who's next? They aren't looking for a 15 to 20 for Ralph. Anyone else on the Chinese payroll (red envelope express) well, that's a horse of a different color. I heard they have an "Angel" in their sights. For some reason, he's a greater target. Don't know the how or why.

Ralphie hired Pat Smith as defense counsel. Basically an insider trading lawyer. Doesn't seem to have tried any well known public corruption cases. Interesting choice. Also wondering how the fuck Ralphie is paying the dude on his meager public servant salary. Smith likely bills around $1,000 an hour and one trip to Saipan is easily $20k in expenses.

We already breaking out the tuba yan plenty chuguan. Gonna be fiesta. 5-7 years in guma fed sounds low. Check the sentencing guidelines. 10-15 years more like it if it goes to trial, 5-7 only if the prosecution accepts a plea deal, but why the fuck would they? It's a slam dunk conviction and a career-maker for the lead prosecutor.
