Serial rapist posing as officer charged with sex assault

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:22 p.m. HST, Oct 25, 2013

A 45-year-old convicted serial rapist is again charged with sexually assaulting another woman while out on work furlough.

Prosecutors Thursday charged Michael Lee Carter with kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 21-year-old woman on Sept. 15 after representing himself as a law enforcement officer. His bail was set at $500,000.

Carter was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Chinatown. 

Carter was on work furlough from the Laumaka Work Furlough Center. He has been in the work furlough program since June.

Carter has an extensive criminal and sex assault record beginning in 1993.

He was first convicted third-degree sex assault in 1993. In 2005 Lee was convicted of impersonating a law enforcement officer, kidnapping and several counts of sexual assault. In July 2005, Lee was sentenced to 10 years, of which 40 months was a mandatory minimum sentence. His current sentence was supposed to have ended Oct. 3, 2014.

Carter was slated to go before the parole board in January.

If an overweight person were trying to lose weight, would you send them to work at a buffet? Chemical castration, people. Make it legal, make it happen.

That's right. Eliminate the sexual urges of these predators who are beyond help with chemicals. It's a humane way of dealing with this issue.

Or.....you could introduce these people to Allie which might be just enough to take the place of chemicle castration.

Why on earth are people like this given work furloughs? He is a serial criminal. Maybe this latest rape and impersonation of a lazy, inept HPD officer might lead to a longer sentence? let us hope so. HPD is as worthless as they come although the courts out here are maybe worse. This place is not safe for women.

Our legal system is broken. Some of these guys like this one is a danger to society, and should be locked away but good. And if the problem is money to house these losers, tents, peanut butter and jelly and water, and re-instituting chain gangs for awhile so they can pay their debts to society sounds better than steak and eggs, air con, and cable tv Maybe the old days were better: people like this were executed in the name of Ku of the ili and moku.

Seems like this is a peek at things to come, as our illustriated governor wants to bring back the prisoners from the mainland prisons, which means early release of existing convicts because of overcrowding. If this is the intent, then how about loosening up the gun laws so that the law-abiding citizens can defend themselves, because obviously HPD cannot be everywhere to protect the public.

And good people stayed home and did not vote. The Ainokea attitude allows the liberal voters to have their way in all aspects of our government. Get your friends out to vote these guys out of office, that's what Obama suggested when he said the people opposing him should do instead of "pulling down the government". Good suggestion.

In NY State, the mentally ill got kicked out of hospitals to make room for prisons during the 1960-70's. Now, New York State wants more space in the prisons so sexual predators are now classified as mentally ill. They have been taken out of jail and into the mental health system - all without training the staff on how to deal with these often violent offenders. My sister has worked with the mentally retarded for 30 years and she's afraid to go to her job. She's been attacked twice this year. All because clueless politicians think that predators can be cured with treatment and a pat on the head.

No accountability for the parole board?? Punishment for the parole board should be mandatory. High school dropouts could probably do a better job. So many multiple offenders on the street. Stupidity as insanity continues.......

With prison overcrowding, the temptation to be lenient on criminals will increase. Given the liberal bent of this state, that's like throwing gasoline on the fire. We need more prisons. I'd say ship some to the mainland, but we know what uncle Neil thinks about that.

This is a predictable result of a political philosophy that sees these criminals as victims of society instead of holding them responsible for their actions. Only when we start holding each individual, regardless of circumstance, responsible for their actions instead of blaming others or their environment, will we see a positive shift in our society.

How exactly does that work? Impersonating an officer leads to sex? Which is of course rape. But how does playing like he is a cop get him laid? I don't get the connection. Can someone explain it?
