Hawaii prosecuting attorneys said that Border pleaded no contest to these charges on Feb. 24: four counts of second-degree sexual assault, second-degree attempted sexual assault and third-degree sexual assault.

“It is my hope that today’s sentencing sends a powerful message to those who betray family trust and prey upon the vulnerable, that they too will be held accountable for their actions,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kelden Waltjen.
