2011 Department of the Prosecuting Attorney of the City and County of Honolulu Legislation Passed


The Department of the Prosecuting Attorney of the City and County of Honolulu advocated for a bill, passed by the Hawaii State Legislature this year, that included language from three of the Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney’s 2011 Legislative Package’s bills that makes promoting prostitution a Class A felony; makes “habitual solicitation of prostitution” a Class C felony; and gives victims of prostitution better access to witness protection [House Bill 240, SD1, CD1 became Act 145, on 6/20/2011 (Gov. Msg. No. 1248)].  The department also played a key role in passing a bill that extended the time for temporary restraining orders from 90 days to 180 days [House Bill 968, HD1, SD1 became Act 085, on 6/8/2011 (Gov. Msg. No. 1188)].

Oahu Circuit Court Judge Karen Tooko Nakasone Swearing-In Ceremony


On Tuesday, November 1, 2011, from 4:00 P.M., I attended the swearing-in ceremony of new Oahu Circuit Court Judge Karen Tooko Nakasone at the Hawaii Supreme Court.  I saw a lot of friends, including former Hawaii Supreme Court Justice Ronald T.Y. Moon who I worked with closely when I served as Judiciary Committee Chairman in the Hawaii House of Representatives from 2008 to 2010.  I congratulate newly sworn-in Judge Karen Tooko Nakasone, and maybe I will appear before her as a trial attorney in the near future?
