Former Honolulu police officer Jessie Laconsay was sentenced today in state court to 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting an underage girl.
The sentence was part of a plea deal he negotiated with the prosecutor in exchange for his no contest pleas.
Laconsay, 37, pleaded no contest in November to four counts of second-degree sexual assault and two counts of third-degree sexual assault. A grand jury returned an indictment last June charging him with four counts of first-degree sexual assault instead of second-degree assault. First-degree sexual assault carries a mandatory 20-year prison term.
The charges accused him of sexually assaulting a girl who was under 16 years old over a two-and-a-half year period.
Laconsay, a 10-year veteran of the Honolulu Police Department, resigned on Dec. 2.
