A woman who admitted to police that she would sell cocaine out of her Toto residence, then spend the drug money on her children, pleaded guilty in the Superior Court of Guam on Wednesday.
Charlene Bernadette Cruz Untalan, 31, pleaded guilty to possession of a Schedule II controlled substance during a change-of-plea hearing held before Judge Anita Sukola.
“I hate jail,” Untalan said after Sukola questioned her about the plea agreement.
Untalan was released from custody and given a three-year suspended prison sentence with credit for time served. She had already served more than three months in prison.
In April 2018, a search warrant was executed at a home in Toto after officers assigned to the Mandaña Drug Task Force received information of illegal drug activity.
Officers then arrested Untalan on charges of illegal possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, illegal possession of a Schedule II controlled substance with intent to distribute, child abuse and possession in a drug-free school zone.
Authorities seized 5 grams of cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
