The Attorney General’s Office accused her of importing undeclared household goods last year.

A special assistant for programs and grants of the Rota mayor’s office, Hocog was not arrested but was summoned to appear on Sept. 24, 2019 in Superior Court on Rota.

According to the information filed on June 17, 2018 on Rota, Hocog concealed for the purpose of importation undeclared household goods, with the total sum of the items being subject to excise tax.

The items included seven doors, one refrigerator, one washer, one dryer, 20 tiles, one bunk bed, and four paint buckets. The offense carries a maximum punishment of five years imprisonment and a $2,000 fine.

At her arraignment on Sept. 27, 2019, Hocog was represented by attorney Joaquin DLG Torres and waived advisement of her constitutional rights. She entered a plea of not guilty.

The government was represented by chief prosecutor John Bailey.
