Jury finds Kauai man guilty of assault in Pahoa


Prosecuting Attorney Jay T. Kimura announced today that:

On August 9, 2010, a Hawai’i County jury rejected the self-defense claim of Kauai resident Jordan Flores, 29, and found him guilty of assault in the second degree. Third Circuit Court Judge Glenn S. Hara accepted the verdict and set sentencing for October 12, 2010 at 8 o’clock a.m.

Investigation by the Hawaii Police Department revealed that on April 12, 2008, the victim of the assault and his girlfriend attended a birthday party at a private residence near Pahoa. Shortly before midnight, approximately 15 men entered the residence where the party was being held. Within minutes, the victim was attacked by Flores and knocked unconscious. The victim was lying on the floor unconscious, with a fractured jaw and bleeding profusely from his mouth when witnesses pulled Flores off the victim.

Assault in the second degree is a class “C” felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.00.
