Visiting priest acquitted of sexual assault at Holy Trinity

By Star-Advertiser staff

A Circuit Court jury deliberated for about two hours Monday before acquitting a priest of charges that he kidnapped and sexually assaulted a woman on the grounds of an East Honolulu church this year.

The Rev. Bothdan Borowic, 56, was found not guilty of all charges following the trial in Circuit Judge Colette Garibaldi's courtroom.

Borowic was accused of sexually assaulting the 55-year-old woman at the Makai House, a former convent on the grounds of Holy Trinity Church.  

Borowic was charged in the case only two weeks after arriving here. 

He came here to lead services for the St. Sophia's Ukrainian Greek Catholic Mission, according to a spokesman for the Catholic Diocese of Hawaii.
