DOC sends wrong guy to court due to mixup

THE principal suspect in the kidnapping and assault of a woman in the parking lot of Crown Bakery was scheduled for a criminal trial setting yesterday. However, the suspect didn’t show up because the Department of Corrections sent a different defendant to court due to an apparent confusion over names.

Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho was supposed to be in Judge Anita Sukola’s courtroom, but DOC officers transporting defendants for court hearings brought a different Tedtaotao. A mixup occurred as there are several detainees surnamed Tedtaotao.

“There are about a handful of defendants bearing Tedtaotao’s last name and they sent Ray Tedtaotao, a different defendant. My apologies,” Sukola said during yesterday’s hearing.

Camacho, 33, is being held on $250,000 cash bail for allegedly kidnapping a woman in October 2012.

His cousin, Raymond Torres Tedtaotao, was also implicated in the case after Camacho gave him the victim’s credit card. Tedtaotao and Corinna Blas were charged with fraudulent use of a credit card, identity theft, and conspiracy to commit second-degree robbery.

The criminal trial setting was set to continue on June 10 to give the prosecution more time to provide copies of video recordings to Camacho’s counsel, Douglas Moylan.

Camacho is listed as a level three sex offender in the Guam Sex Offender Registry after he was convicted of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct in April 2011.

In 1999, he was convicted of third-degree robbery and was sentenced in 2000 for fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct. He has a string of criminal records including impersonating a police officer, robbery, assault, and terrorizing.
