A former Hawaiian Airlines ramp agent was sentenced Thursday to 30 days in jail for hiding a cellphone in the ceiling of the women’s locker room and recording a female employee in the shower.
Kawika Michael Figueroa, who pleaded guilty in September to first-degree violation of privacy, was also ordered by Circuit Judge Richard Perkins to perform 100 hours of community service, pay restitution, and enter a sex offender treatment program.
Figueroa was a ramp agent with the airline when he placed the phone in the locker room’s ceiling and recorded female employees in the shower, the Attorney General’s Office said. The video recording on his phone was recovered through an investigation by the attorney general and the Sheriffs Division.
The victim says she continues to be affected by his actions, the office said.
“This type of criminal conduct was a gross intrusion into a person’s privacy,” Attorney General Doug Chin said in a statement.
Also at the sentencing, Perkins granted Figueroa a deferred acceptance of guilty plea, allowing him to keep the conviction off his record if he complies with the court’s conditions for four years.
