HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A former Maui police captain will have to register as a sex offender after groping a female sergeant while on the job last year.

In July, Capt. Stephen Orikasa pleaded guilty to fourth-degree sex assault.

He resigned the same month after 27 years of service.

Fourth-degree sex assault is a misdemeanor, and carries a year of probation.

Under a plea deal, Orikasa will serve no jail time.
