A 37-year-old police officer was indicted today on charges of raping a 14-year-old relative of his girlfriend in their Kapolei home last week, according to court documents.
Jessie Laconsay is being held at Oahu Community Correctional Center, unable to post bail of $500,000. An Oahu grand jury indicted him today on two counts of first-degree sexual assault and one count of third-degree sexual assault.
According to a police affidavit, at 6 p.m. on June 7, Laconsay’s 32-year-old girlfriend arrived at the home in Kapolei, where she had been living with the suspect for a year, to find the suspect “having sex” with her teenage relative. Sexual contact with a minor under 16 is considered sexual assault under Hawaii law. The suspect admitted to his girlfriend, whom he had been living with for eight years, that he had sex with the juvenile female on two other occasions, according to court documents.
Laconsay, a patrol officer assigned to Windward Oahu, was arrested June 8 at 12:20 p.m. at Army Beach in Waialua and taken to the hospital with wounds that police said were self-inflicted.
Arresting police officers said Laconsay had a deep cut on his right wrist and another cut across his left wrist. There was a serrated knife on the floor of the suspect’s white Dodge Charger.
The suspect told the arresting officer that he was sorry for “letting us down,” the affidavit said.
Laconsay was hospitalized at Wahiawa General Hospital and later transferred to Queen’s Medical Center until he was released on Friday.
Laconsay, a 10-year veteran of the Honolulu Police Department is on unpaid administrative leave.
The hunt for Laconsay began June 7 after the sexual assault was reported to authorities, who issued a CrimeStoppers bulletin describing the suspect and his white Dodge Charger.
