A state jury found karate sensei Michael Shimabukuro guilty today of molesting one of his students starting in 2005 when the boy was 12.
The jury found Shimabukuro, 34, guilty of three counts of third-degree sexual assault covering the period 2005 to 2007.
He faces a five-year prison term on each count at sentencing in January.
After receiving the verdicts, Circuit Judge Randal K.O. Lee revoked Shimabukuro’s supervised release, imposed a $150,000 bail and ordered him into custody.
