A plea offer has been made for Brandon Manuk, the man charged in a 2019 home invasion case, which could set him free. 

The offer calls for Manuk to do jail time that he's already served, according to his lawyer, Ana Gayle. 

"I have an offer from the government and it calls for his release so I've been trying to get in touch with his family so I have a place for him to get released to," Gayle said. 

The Office of the Attorney General did not object to Manuk's release, according to Gayle. Counsels did not state how much time Manuk has already spent detained but he was arrested at the end of August 2019. 

Parties will return to court for a follow-up next week Tuesday. 

Superior Court of Guam Judge Anita Sukola told the attorney general's office to inform the victim that Manuk may be released at the next hearing date. 

Manuk was indicted on charges of home invasion as a first-degree felony, second-degree criminal sexual conduct as a first-degree felony and burglary as a second-degree felony.

The victim told police she woke up to a feeling of someone grabbing and touching her, documents stated.

She then allegedly spotted Manuk, who was accused of grabbing her arm and attempting to bring her to the bedroom.

The woman reportedly cried, and her roommate then arrived and told the defendant to leave, but he allegedly refused, according to the documents. 

Officers arrived to find Manuk – who was reported to be a neighbor – still inside the house, documents stated.

Both the woman and her roommate told authorities they did not know him but had seen Manuk occasionally around the apartment complex, documents stated.
