Kona jury finds man guilty of sexually assaulting two juveniles


Hawaii Prosecuting Attorney Jay Kimura announced today that on June 24, 2010, a Kona jury found Miki Pousima guilty of four counts of Sexual Assault in the Third Degree, knowingly subjecting a person less than 14 years old to sexual contact. Each of these offenses is punishable by up to five years in prison, or five years probation with terms and conditions of probation which could include a year in jail. Mr. Pousima testified at his trial that he worked in masonry, tree trimming and for Big Island Methodist Churches in Hilo, Kona and Honokaa in the past. He is no longer working for health reasons.

The offenses resulted from reports by two juvenile victims who testified that the Defendant subjected them to sexual contact in 2002 and 2005. The jury convicted the Defendant after a two week long trial which began on June 15, 2010. Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Dale Yamada Ross represented the State. The Defendant was represented by Deputy Public Defender Peter Bresciani.

Sentencing has been scheduled for August 23. 2010 at 8:30 a.m. before Judge Elizabeth Strance.

    our prisons in the U.S are over crowded and criminals get released back onto the streets too quickly to repeat their original offenses or other offenses….. HEY did any one notice that criminals don't want to live life by the average working citizen's rules ? Well that is life, predator and prey, you make the choice how you want to live

    All this is a lie… it started out of anger and this man Miki Pousima is innocent! He has a beautiful family that he’d never do such a thing! This is false accusations he is in there for hitting these young girls mother, because she attacked him over his own dvd that he buyt from samoa so she forced her own daughter and niece to lie in court. She deserve it and he doesn’t deserve this punishment..poor man is in prison for something he never done and GOD knows this!… but no matter what had happen miki still forgave them and he still prays for them. May GOD have mercy on her soul for doing this!!!…..
