Court upholds former UOG professor's conviction

Mike Ehlert

The Supreme Court of Guam on Wednesday upheld the conviction of former University of Guam professor Michael Ehlert, who has been sentenced to two years behind bars for sexual assault on his two then-students.

“Ultimately, we find no merit to any of Ehlert’s complaints,” the court said in rejecting Ehlert’s appeal.

Claiming he was denied a fair trial, Ehlert challenged the sufficiency of evidence of force or coercion, the proper admission of evidence and proper instruction to the jury.
