April 4, 2017 (Hagåtña) — Governor Calvo has pulled the trigger to deport three criminals as part of his initiative to keep residents of Guam safe.
U.S. immigration officials identified the Clinton Agtarap Lastimoza, Mark Kuka and Dixie Tither as having committed deportable crimes. Their files were flagged with a federal detainer. Police notified the victims and all noted that they support the deportation of these three criminals.
• Clinton Agtarap Lastimoza, a citizen of the Republic of the Philippines, was serving one year in prison for 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct as a 2nd degree felony. His scheduled release date was for July 28, 2017.
• Mark Kuka, of the Federated States of Micronesia, was serving three years in prison for aggravated assault, as a 2nd degree felony, with credit for time served. His projected release date was Aug. 18, 2018.
• Dixie Tither, also known as BJ, is a Federated States of Micronesia citizen, was convicted of 3rd criminal sexual conduct, as a 2nd degree felony, as a lesser-included offense of one count of 1st degree criminal sexual conduct, as a 1st degree felony, and sentenced to 30 months imprisonment at Department of Corrections with credit for time served. His projected release date was March 11, 2018.
These are the latest in the Governor’s initiative to remove criminal immigrants from the island to ensure they can never harm another Guamanian. This brings the total number of criminals whose sentences the Governor commuted for either removal or deportation to 26.
With their commuted sentence, the Department of Corrections is transferring them from the local prison into the custody of federal officials, which also means the federal government will take over the cost of their detention and subsequent procedures that are part of the deportation process.
