Ex Boys & Girls Club worker charged with sex assault

Article here. Excerpt:

'A former Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui employee is facing charges alleging she sexually assaulted a pre-teenage girl at the agency’s Central Maui clubhouse last year.

Victoria Satoafaiga, 28, of Waikapu was arrested in December after being indicted by a Maui County grand jury. She posted a $101,000 bail bond to be released, court records show.

Satoafaiga has pleaded not guilty to third-degree sexual assault, first-degree sexual assault and second-degree custodial interference.

Another charge of attempted third-degree sexual assault was dismissed July 11 when 2nd Circuit Judge Rhonda Loo granted a defense request.

She said the prosecution asserted that the attempted third-degree sexual assault involved sexual biting and sucking of the victim’s chest area, causing hickeys, on Oct. 27.

“The state, however, fails to include this information in the indictment,” Loo said.

She ruled that because those specifics weren’t included, Satoafaiga wasn’t given adequate notice about the charge.

The dismissal of the charge was without prejudice, so the prosecution could recharge Satoafaiga.'
