SUPERIOR Court Presiding Judge Roberto C. Naraja has sentenced Renato Gaviola and David Bamba to prison terms in two separate cases.

Gaviola 53, pleaded guilty to stalking in the second degree and two counts of disturbing the peace.

He was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment, all suspended except 60 days. He will be placed under probation for two years upon release from prison, and will serve 200 hours of community work service.

Judge Naraja also ordered Gaviola not to consume alcohol or to have any contact with the victim, her home or  car.

Gaviola was arrested in January after the victim identified him as the person who took her undergarments that were on the clothesline at her house.

She also told police that Gaviola on many occasions appeared unannounced and was seen roaming outside her home.

David Bamba, 61, for his part, violated the sex offender registry conditions when he lived with his girlfriend and her three children.

Bamba also entered a plea of guilty to two counts of assault and battery and domestic violence.

He was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment, all suspended except one year.

He will also be placed on five years’ probation upon release from jail, and will perform 300 hours of community work service.

He was ordered not to consume alcohol or to have contact with his girlfriend, stepson or any children pursuant to the sex offender registry guidelines.

Bamba, a resident of Tinian, was convicted of 13 counts of sexual abuse of a child on April 17, 1986, and was sentenced to 65 years’ imprisonment all suspended except for the first 22 years in jail.

Bamba is a tier III registered sex offender.

In Jan. 2020, Bamba was arrested for slapping his girlfriend and stepson.

An elderly household member who witnessed the incident told police that Bamba got mad when his girlfriend woke him up to “cook” for the children.
