District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona Manglona has dismissed with prejudice the charges against former Tinian Dynasty’s casino VIP services manager George Que, according to local media.
Dismissed with prejudice means the U.S. government is not allowed to re-file the same case in the future. Assistant U.S. Attorney Russell Lorfing said the motion to dismiss was made in good faith, primarily based on the deferred-prosecution agreement of the parties.
