HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Waianae man charged with molesting a young girl will side-step a prison sentence under a deal with city prosecutors.

Thomas Kamaka, Jr., 43, pleaded no contest Monday to four counts of second-degree sexual assault. He was originally charged with four counts of first-degree sex assault.

The victim was under the age of 14. Investigators say Kamaka also beat up the girl's brother when the boy tried to intervene.

Second-degree sex assault carries a punishment of up to 10 years in prison. Under the plea deal, Kamaka will be sentenced to five years probation April 23rd.

Circuit Judge Karen Ahn indicated that if Kamaka violates any condition of probation, she will have zero tolerance and send him straight to prison.
