LAST UPDATED: 04:25 a.m. HST, Nov 11, 2013

Police charged a 20-year-old Waianae man with repeatedly assaulting a 24-year-old woman.

According to police, Rein Keliihoomalu violated terms of a temporary restraining order three times between Nov. 5 and 9.

On Nov. 5, Keliihoomalu allegedly approached and struck the victim. The next day, he approached the victim again and choked her, police said.

Keliihoomalu violated the protective order again on Saturday and was arrested.

Police charged Keliihoomalu Sunday with two counts of second-degree assault. His aggregate bail was set at $25,000.

So, when your bail is 25,000 you only have to cough up 2,500 real dollars to get out and finish the job. The young lady should be aware that the legal system here thinks her life is only worth 2,500. Sleep well.

I think he deserves 2 more violations for the restraining order. 5 would be the lucky number to get scolded and then released. more of Hawaii "justice" for the alleged criminals, none for the victims. As one defense lawyer admitted "dead victims can't complain".

Judicial system's way is "Catch and Release." That's why criminals end up back on the streets and keep on doing things like this.
