Wilhelm Rekis Aichi was charged with five sexual assault charges.  McQuire Imeong was charged with two sexual assault charges and Willibolt Demei a.k.a Bunt was charged with two as well.

The case stemmed from case filed in early September when nine men were arrested for sexual assault, prostitution, criminal solicitation to commit prostitution as well as trafficking of controlled substance, methamphetamine or “ice”.

According to court information and police affidavit, a 13 year old eight grader female was introduced by friends to Silves Oiterong, Mtoched Hideo and Wilhelm Rekis Aichi in May of 2017.  The young girl and other minor friends started smoking “ice” or methamphetamine with these men.

Report states that in May, the young girl was taken by Mtoched Hideo and her other minor friend to meet Mr. Aichi at Cove Resort.  It was reported that she was told to go meet Aichi in the room and in the room she was given “ice” to smoke and Aichi had sex with her.

According to the minor’s report, she was given 2 large straw of methamphetamine or ice worth $400 and $300 cash as her “supplies” by Mr. Aichi after he had sex with her.

Similar incidents occurred at two different times at two other locations, Palasia Hotel and Jing Pin hotel. Hotel records corroborate the dates mentioned in the affidavit. Each time, the minor was given the drug methamphetamine  and large amount of cash.

Report also states that the McQuire Oiterong had sex with the minor twice at his residence in Ngermid. Willibolt Demei, a.k.a. Bunt had sex with her in the car on Compact Road and once in Ngesaol at Risel Uludong’s residence.

The three men are currently in jail awaiting trial.  Both Wilhem Rekis Aichi and Willibolt Demei were earlier charged with Trafficking in Controlled Substance.  A separate case has been filed against Mcquire Imeong for charges of Trafficking a Controlled Substance. [/restrict]
