Hagåtña — Two more criminals now face deportation after Governor Eddie Baza Calvo commuted their sentences.
The Calvo-Tenorio Administration continues to work with federal partners to deport non-U.S. citizens who fail to abide by the laws of Guam and the United States.
Fritz Hartman and Justin Naich now await deportation while in federal custody. U.S. immigration officials identified both as having committed deportable crimes. Victims were notified.
Fritz Hartman: Convicted of 4th degree criminal-sexual conduct, and two counts of tampering with witnesses.
Justin Naich: Convicted of aggravated assault as a second-degree felony, possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony, terrorizing as a third degree felony.
Once the Governor signs an Order of Commutation of Sentence, the detainee is transferred to federal officials who carry out the deportation process.
The order in which detainees are deported is solely determined by federal officials. It costs about $119 a day, or more than $43,000 a year, to house, feed and provide for the basic needs of each individual at the Department of Corrections.
This action brings the total number of criminals whose sentences the Governor commuted for either removal or deportation to 44.
