Bail not reduced in kidnapping, assault
WAILUKU - Bail was continued at $170,000 Monday for a 30-year-old man charged with kidnapping and sexual assault of female in 2009.
According to court records Makni Iosinobu is charged with two counts of first-degree sexual assault, attempted first-degree sexual assault and kidnapping for an incident on June 13, 2009.
Deputy Public Defender Greg Ball had asked that bail be reduced to $17,000 for Iosinobu.
Ball had Iosinobu's cousin testify in court that Iosinobu has a residence in Kihei.
Deputy Prosecutor Simone Polak said that the court testimony wasn't enough as a probation officer could not contact anyone via phone at the Kihei residence.
She said the defendant is a "danger to the community."
Polak added that the victim in the case said she did have a relationship with Iosinobu for two weeks and it was dissolved amicably, but a year to a year and a half later Iosinobu committed the felony crimes against the victim.
Second Circuit Judge Rhonda Loo maintained bail for Iosinobu and ordered him to follow certain conditions including staying away from the victim.
