A defendant in a local drug case appeared for a hearing in the Superior Court of Guam without pants on. Ryan Paul Gebhart, also known as Vanessa Gebhart, was being held at the Department of Corrections prior to the hearing and was questioned by Judge Anita Sukola as he was leaving the court.

"What are you wearing under your T-shirt?" asked the judge.

Gebhart replied that he was wearing shorts and said the only T-shirt DOC had available was "too big."

"Don't let that happen again," said Sukola.

Gebhart is facing a charge of possession of a Schedule II controlled substance as a third-degree felony.

A warrant for his arrest was issued after he failed to report for a hearing in December 2018. A violation was issued after he failed to report to probation for processing after being released from jail in November.

Public defender John Morrison said there seemed to be some room for an honest mistake on Gebhart's part because he was never advised to be in court.

Gebhart was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond and ordered to check into probation three times a week and submit to drug and alcohol testing.

What's next

He is scheduled to appear for an arraignment hearing on Wednesday.

A trial setting hearing was set for April 24 at 9:30 a.m.
