Surfer pleads not guilty to attempted murder

By Gregg K. Kakesako

LAST UPDATED: 07:58 a.m. HST, May 28, 2014

A 30-year-old Manoa woman entered a plea of not guilty Tuesday to charges that she tried to kill a 73-year-old woman in a Waikiki parking garage.

Jill Anjuli Hansen is charged with second-degree attempted murder after she followed Elizabeth Conklin into a secured parking garage at Diamond Head Apartments and allegedly hit Conklin with her car as Conklin got out of her vehicle on May 14. 

Hansen also is charged with unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle and attempted unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle. 

Hansen was arraigned in Circuit Court on Tuesday morning via closed circuit video link with Oahu Community Correctional Center.

She is in custody on $1 million bail.

Circuit Judge Richard Perkins assigned the case to Circuit Judge Ed Kubo, setting trial for the week of July 28.

Hansen was indicted by an Oahu grand jury on May 20. 

Police said Hansen struck Conklin with a Volkswagen sedan. Then, while Conklin was partially wedged under another vehicle parked in the garage, Hansen allegedly tried to hit her again. She reversed her vehicle and accelerated toward Conklin but was unable to strike her because of the woman's position under the vehicle.  

Hansen's third attempt to hit Conklin failed when a maintenance technician, Christopher Khoury, shattered Hansen's rear car window with a crowbar.

Conklin said in an interview with the Star-Advertiser that she believes Hansen may have tried to kill her to steal her car, a 2014 BMW 328i station wagon.

On May 19, while still in custody, Hansen apparently attempted to exit the intake area at the Oahu Community Correctional Center by trying to slip behind a staffer who was walking through the door that leads to the sally port, the secured entryway where vans pull in.

Prison staff members were able stop her before she left the intake area.

On her Facebook page, Hansen said she is a professional longboard surfer and model. She's also profiled on the Association of Surfing Professionals Hawaii website.

Crazy surfer lady tries to run over an old lady. She gets a million dollar bail. Crazy dude lights another guy on fire. He gets a two hundred thousand dollar bail. Not saying any of the bail should be higher or lower, but shouldn't they be about the same? Or am I mistaken and the fire guys bail is two million?

You are simply not aware of how the bail system works. Bail is based not only on the severity of the crime, but on the resources of the accused. A billionaire accused of murder will not get the same bail amount as a homeless person accused of the exact same crime.

Shouldn't there also be a charge of trying to escape custody added on?

Kona Warrior, I don't believe that an escape charge will really be added on as she was not really able to escape. Escape charges generally only occur when there is an actual escape from the prison property.

Best guess: judge set bail at a number he or she figured the individual defendant could not meet because no matter the color of the skin, or the particular genitals possessed, that kind of crazy is dangerous for all of us when walking around loose.The crazy she seems to have more funds than the crazy he, and so the numbers are not the same.

She's not guilty of hitting the woman, backing up to try and hit her again twice! She also allegedly bragged about her father being a prominent attorney, but doesn't look like he's bailing her out. Oh, that's right, he had a restraining order against her for two years, stating she had hired someone to kill him!

Would you please stop describing this woman as "a surfer." It's insulting to surfers and unnecessary.

How about "driver"? That's what she was doing when she tried to kill the other lady.

I wish the SA would stop refering to her as a surfer, unless she is a pro-surfer and making a living wage off of surfing. What she is a one crazy woman who wanted a BMW.

We are stuck with the SA, a paper that has been in the cheap, sleazy and sensational mode for a long time. She's pretty, surfs and is apparently mentally ill. Bold prediction: SA continues to run splashy photos of her to sell papers.

Again, when these people plead not guilty on these obvious cases, causing thousands of dollars to be spent prosecuting them, they should be held responsible for paying for the prosecution when they finally, inevitably lose.
