SUPERIOR Court Presiding Judge Roberto C. Naraja has sentenced Allan Aguon Lifoifoi, 38, to 15 years imprisonment to be served day by day.

At the change of plea hearing on Thursday, Lifoifoi pleaded guilty to count 1: sexual abuse of a minor in the first degree, and count 2: sexual abuse of minor in the second degree.

Judge Naraja accepted the plea agreement after reviewing it and ascertaining that the defendant was entering the plea in a good state of mind.

For its part, the government agreed not to charge Lifoifoi for three other sexual abuse of a minor allegations against him.

Judge Naraja sentenced Lifoifoi to 30 years’ imprisonment for count 1, all suspended except 15 years to be served day by day without the possibility of parole or early release.

As for count 2, Lifoifoi was sentenced to 15 years’ imprisonment to run concurrent with the sentence in count 1.

Lifoifoi was given 126 days’ credit for time served. He will be released on June 11, 2035.

After serving his sentence, Lifoifoi will be placed on 10 years’ probation and will register in the CNMI sex offender registry.

Lifoifoi will also pay court costs.

At the hearing, Lifoifoi expressed his remorse. “To those…I have hurt, I am very sorry…this is 15 years of my life, and I will carry the cross. I just hope for the best for everybody.”

In June,  Lifoifoi was arrested on charges of sexual abuse of a minor in the first degree, sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree, and disturbing the peace.

The mother of the victim told police that Lifoifoi had touched her 16-year-old son inappropriately sometime between March 7 and 12, 2020 at their residence.

The boy also said that Lifoifoi sexually abused him when he was about 8 and 10 years old.

Lifoifoi was brought to the Criminal Investigation Bureau where he was questioned and later released pending further investigation.

Later, police learned that Lifoifoi had posted a video on Facebook, stating that he was about to end his life on Mt. Tapochau.

He refused to speak to anyone except  police detective Rosa T. Rios who was assigned to his case.

Rios proceeded to Mt. Tapochau and was able to persuade Lifoifoi to step away from the edge of the mountain top.
