Lawyer of Hawaii singer charged on Guam hopeful for probation

HAGATNA, Guam (AP) - An attorney for singer Yvonne Marianne Elliman-Alexander and her husband says he is hopeful they will be sentenced to probation over drug possessions charges in Guam.

The defendants appeared at a hearing Monday after each pleaded guilty to a felony drug possession count filed in August.

Elliman-Alexander performed on the Grammy Award-winning Saturday Night Fever soundtrack in 1978.

The Pacific Daily News reports that airport officers found marijuana in Allen Bernard Alexander's belongings and crystal-like rocks and a glass pipe in Elliman-Alexander's belongings.

They were arrested in Guam, where they were set to perform at a benefit concert.

Their attorney, Mike Phillips, said after the hearing that his clients have completed everything they were assigned.
