A prisoner who could have been released into our community next year was instead released at the airport in Chuuk minutes ago.
The prisoner is Reid Albert, a molester, burglar and drunk driver who was not showing signs of rehabilitation while in prison. The governor commuted his sentence on the condition he never return to Guam.
Albert was charged with burglary as a second-degree felony and fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct as a misdemeanor. He was sentenced to five years for the burglary charge and one year for the criminal sexual conduct for sentences to run consecutively. He also had been convicted in prior years for family violence, criminal mischief, violation of a court order, driving under the influence of alcohol, and driving without a license.
The Federated States of Micronesia’s Consul General office on Guam worked with the Governor’s office on Albert’s removal. A “Do Not Enter“ list has been established and posted with Guam Customs and the Guam Airport Police with a photo and stats of the persons removed.
Albert’s name has been sent to the relevant local agencies, federal stakeholders, and airlines as a person not allowed to return to Guam.
About two weeks ago, Governor Calvo met with U.S. Customs and Border Protection Director Brian Humphrey, in San Francisco. They have agreed to assist Guam in placing those removed on a watch list and not allowing them entry into Guam.
