Honolulu police officer accused of raping friend’s daughter

HONOLULU (AP) — A grand jury on Wednesday indicted a Honolulu police officer on allegations that he raped a friend’s 14-year-old daughter.

Officer Jessie Laconsay is charged with four counts of first-degree sexual assault and two counts of third-degree sexual assault.

The girl’s mother found them having sex last week, according to a police affidavit for an arrest warrant. The girl told her mother they have had sex before, which Laconsay denied.

Laconsay was yelling and crying, then fled in his police car, the document said.

The next day, police put out an all-points bulletin seeking help finding Laconsay. A police corporal and an officer found him parked at a beach on Oahu’s North Shore with cuts on his wrists.

While the corporal was treating Laconsay’s injuries as they waited for an ambulance, Laconsay kept saying he was sorry for “letting us down,” the affidavit said.

Laconsay is being held on $500,000 bail. His public defender declined to comment.
