A local news group in Sorsogon, “the Media Solutions,” reported, that former Matnog Mayor Guillermo “Guaming” Gacis So, 67, is detained in a separate cell away from the hardened criminals.

So was convicted for ordering the suspension of Barangay Laboy chairman Ernesto Gile based on a spurious Sangguniang Bayan resolution.

Based on the Anti–Graft court resolution promulgated Aug. 24 and penned by Associate Justice Roland Jurado, So was sentenced to eight years imprisonment and fined P5,000.
