SAIPAN - District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona has exonerated the $10,000 appearance bond posted by Guangyi He.

He is an overstaying alien who was arrested for possession of CNMI driver’s license that he obtained by submitting a fraudulent immigration document.

Last week, he pled guilty to conspiring with others to illegally produce an identification document.

Judge Manglona sentenced He to time served and ordered him to pay a $500 fine and $100 special assessment fee immediately after sentencing.

Because he appeared as required throughout the proceedings and at his sentencing hearing on Sept. 11, the court exonerated his appearance bond minus his $500 fine and $100 special assessment fee which were garnished by the court,

According to the factual basis of the plea deal, He conspired with another person on Jan. 16, 2019 to obtain a CNMI driver’s license by presenting a falsified U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Form I-797 as evidence of lawful status in the Commonwealth in exchange for $1,500

On Aug. 26, 2019, Department of Public Safety police officers conducted a traffic stop and encountered He, who presented a CNMI driver’s license.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security records showed that He, a citizen of China, entered the CNMI on Dec. 17, 2017, and was granted a CNMI-only conditional parole by U.S. Customs and Border Protection that was effective only until Dec. 28, 2017.
