Faces 90 years in prison

AFTER deliberating for a day and a half, a Superior Court of Guam jury yesterday found Kyle Indalecio Camacho guilty of kidnapping, robbery, terrorizing and two counts of special allegations of use of a weapon in the commission of a felony.

The 20-year-old convicted sex offender is facing 90 years of imprisonment after abducting a 19-year-old woman from the Micronesia Mall parking lot on Jan. 5.

Assistant Attorney General Gerald Henderson, who prosecuted the case, said he will seek the maximum sentence for Camacho.

The trial lasted four days, during which the victim and her sister testified about how Camacho brought handcuffs and a knife and forced himself into the car of the victim who had come from the Micronesia Mall movie theater.

The victim said Camacho drove off with her car, assaulted her and threatened to kill her while she was handcuffed.

The Guam Police Department executed a manhunt and eventually located the victim about 90 minutes later at the Marbo Cave parking lot.

“The apprehension and conviction of the defendant would not be possible without the bravery of the victim and hard work of the Guam Police Department, who quickly responded to the emergency call,” Henderson said.

The Office of the Attorney General also thanked the victim for her continued courage in facing her abductor during the trial and for re-living her terrifying ordeal.

Attorney General Leonardo Rapadas also commended the victim’s sister for alerting GPD immediately and for providing the information that led to the victim’s rescue.

Camacho was on parole when he committed the abduction. He was on supervised release after serving time for a 2012 conviction for sexually molesting an 11-year-old female.

Judge Anita Sukola will sentence Camacho on Dec. 15 at 10 a.m.

The pre-sentencing investigation report deadline is Dec. 9.
