Lloyd Aguon Sentenced to Additional Six Months in Federal Prison for Failing to Appear to Serve Sentence
SHAWN N. ANDERSON, United States Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, announced that defendant LLOYD JOHN AGUON, age 41, from Umatac, was sentenced today to an additional six months in prison for failure to self-surrender to the United States Marshals Service (USMS) to begin serving his sentence, as previously ordered. On October 25, 2017, Aguon was sentenced in District Court to an 18-month term of imprisonment for being a Felon in Possession of Firearms and Ammunition. He was released on his own recognizance pending a Bureau of Prisons (BOP) determination as to where he would serve his federal prison sentence. Aguon was also ordered to report regularly to the USMS until such time. He further agreed to self-surrender to the USMS once BOP determined his prison location.
On November 21, 2017, the USMS notified Aguon to self-surrender on November 30, 2017, following BOP’s final placement decision. However, Aguon failed to appear as scheduled. Deputies then attempted to locate Aguon at his residence in Umatac. Over the course of an hour, Aguon failed to respond to the deputies’ knocking and announcing their presence. He finally exited once the power was turned off. The United States Attorney’s Office charged Aguon with Failure to Appear, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 3146(a)(2). This federal law makes it unlawful for individuals sentenced to a term of imprisonment and ordered to surrender to the USMS to knowingly and intentionally fail to surrender as ordered.
The investigation was conducted by United States Marshals Service. The case was prosecuted by Belinda Alcantara, Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Guam.
