Local News

A 21-year-old school janitor has been charged with sexually assaulting a student at a small private school in Windward Oahu.

According to court documents, Shawn O’Regan was working at Koolau Baptist Academy when he allegedly assaulted the 14-year-old in a closet during a fair held on campus.

Police were notified after the victim’s mother discovered explicit texts and nude photographs between the teen and O’Regan on a tablet.

O’Regan pleaded not guilty to charges of two counts of first-degree sex assault involving a victim between the ages of 14 and 16 years old, two counts of third-degree sex assault, and promoting pornography for minors. His bail was set at $300,000.

School officials tell us it is cooperating with authorities, adding that something like this has never happened before at the school.
