Man who sexually assaulted young girl sentenced to probation

Thomas Kamaka, Jr. Thomas Kamaka, Jr.

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Waianae man charged with molesting a young girl and beating up the girl's brother was sentenced to five years of probation Monday.

Thomas Kamaka, Jr., 43, pleaded no contest to four counts of second-degree sexual assault in February in a plea deal that allowed him to avoid any time behind bars.

Kamaka 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 usually carries a punishment of up to 10 years in prison.

Under the plea deal Kamaka will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. The plea deal also spared the victim from having to testify against Kamaka in court.
