SUPERIOR Court Associate Judge Teresa Kim-Tenorio has sentenced Robert Jake Palacios to 60 days’ imprisonment for theft.

Palacios, 32, pleaded guilty to the charge on Tuesday.

Judge Kim-Tenorio ordered Palacios to self-surrender to the Department of Corrections immediately and to report to the Office of Adult Probation after serving his sentence.

The judge sentenced Palacios to one year imprisonment all suspended except 60 days. He will not be eligible for parole, early release or work release.

But Palacios was given 16 days’ credit for time served.

After completing his sentence,  he will be placed on probation for three years and pay a fine of $100.

Palacios will not  have direct or indirect contact with the victim during his entire probationary period.

Police said after giving Palacios a ride in the victim’s car, he stole the person’s cell phone, which was in the cup holder between them.

Palacios then asked an electronics store in Garapan to reset the cell phone without a password on Dec. 18, 2019.

Assistant Attorney General Heather Barcinas represented the government while Assistant Public Defender Karie Comstock appeared for Palacios.
