A Kauai Circuit Court jury found a 45-year-old Hanapepe man guilty of raping a teenage relative.
The jury found Larry Cass Ragasa guilty today of two counts of first-degree sexual assault and one count of fourth-degree sex assault.
The crimes happened between Aug. 2001 and June 2002 when the victim was 14 and 15, prosecutors said.
He later subjected the victim to a sexual assault when she was an adult, prosecutors said.
“It took a lot of courage for the victim in this case to come forward and tell her story,” said Prosecuting Attorney Justin F. Kollar, in a news release.
Ragasa’s sentencing is set for June 1.
