A 20-year-old Mililani man charged with rape of a student in Oregon is free after posting bail.
Kasen Kunishima-Takushi recently pleaded not guilty at Washington County Circuit Court in Oregon to charges of first-degree rape, three counts of first-degree sodomy and two counts of fourth-degree assault.
He was released after he posted $52,000 via bond of his $520,000 bail. A pre-trial hearing is set for Nov. 14 where his attorney will offer a plea, according to Deputy District Attorney Bracken McKay.
The assaults occurred between Sept. 1, 2015 and Nov. 20, 2015 in Washington County. Forest Grove police said a female student reported three assaults that occurred on and off campus last November.
Kunishima-Takushi was a student at Pacific University in Oregon for the 2014-2015 academic year and for the first two months of the 2015-2016 year.
The woman reported the alleged attacks to police in late November. By that time, Kunishima-Takushi had returned to Hawaii.
On Oct. 4, he was arrested at the University of Hawaii at Manoa for extradition to Oregon. Kunishima-Takushi is currently a freshman at UH-Manoa.
