  • CRAIG T. KOJIMA/ MAY 19, 2015

    Hugh Jones, supervising deputy attorney general of the Tax and Charities Division of the state Department of the Attorney General, speaks at a news conference.


Deputy Attorney General Hugh R. Jones, the state’s leading authority on the regulation of thousands of local charities and trusts, was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of an intoxicant on the H-3 freeway Thursday morning.

Jones, 56, posted $500 bail, and a court hearing on the charge will be held Oct. 3.

The arrest occurred at 8:30 a.m. on a westbound lane of the H-3 tunnel.

The attorney general’s office today said it had no comment on Jones’ arrest.

Jones supervises the AG’s Tax and Charities Division, which provides regulatory oversight for public charities, charitable trusts and private foundations. The division enforces Hawaii’s charitable solicitation law and provides legal services to the Department of Taxation.
