Assault 3 Trial


On Wednesday, February 20, 2013, I started my assault 3 trial in Honolulu District Court, which has been continued to next week Wednesday.

In the meantime, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Tricia Nakamatsu testified at the House Judiciary Committee and House Consumer Protection and Commerce Committtee at 2 PM in support of our HB235 that amends definition of “victim” in section 706-646, HRS, to include any duly incorporated humane society or duly incorporated society for the prevention of cruelty to animals that impounds, holds, or receives custody of a pet animal pursuant to section 711-1109.1, 711-1109.2, or 711-1110.5, HRS.

Nakamatsu also testified before the House Finance Committee at 3:30 P.M. in support of our HB238 amends section 621-7, HRS, to increase the per diem payments for out-of-state witnesses in criminal cases from $110 to $145. The measure provides an additional $90 per diem payment for witnesses from any island other than the island on which the court is located, when that witness is required to stay overnight.
