THE federal court did not revoke the supervised release of Vickilyn Manglona Teregeyo who admitted to violating the conditions of her probation.

U.S. Probation Officer Gregory Arriola has asked the District Court for the NMI to summon Teregeyo to appear at a hearing and to answer why her supervised release should not be revoked.

Teregeyo, according to Arriola, tampered with the sweat patch applied on her on Aug. 24, 2020. Then on Aug. 25, 2020, he said, Teregeyo submitted a diluted urine sample.

In addition, Arriola said, the defendant tested positive for use of methamphetamine or “ice” on Aug. 25 and Aug. 28, 2020.

At the hearing on Friday, Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona noted that Teregeyo admitted she violated the conditions of her probation.

The judge, who admonished the defendant, accepted the recommendations made by the probation officer and the U.S. government and did not revoke Teregeyo’s supervised release.

The judge also granted the request of the probation officer to order Teregeyo to stay away from or to have no contact with Lucas Manglona.

Teregeyo said it was Lucas Manglona, a former federal offender, who offered her “asiga,” or salt, which turned out to be mixed with “ice.”

The court maintained Teregeyo’s previous conditional release.

Teregeyo was convicted on Guam of the offense of drug user in possession of firearm and ammunition. She was allowed by the federal court  to serve her probation in the CNMI.

On May 24, 2019, Teregeyo was sentenced by District Court of Guam Chief Judge Frances M. Tydingco-Gatewood to time served — 12 months and 18 days — and three years of supervised release, which is set to expire on May 23, 2022.
