Hawaii man gets maximum sentence for assault, kidnap attempt

HONOLULU — A Hawaii man convicted of sexually assaulting and attempting to kidnap a 9-year-old girl has received the maximum prison sentence.

KITV reported Wednesday that Jason Nolen received 10 years for felony attempted kidnapping and five years for third-degree sexual assault.

Authorities say that in March 2018 Nolen followed the girl around an arcade in a Honolulu shopping mall before touching her inappropriately.

A prosecutor says Nolen tried to abduct the victim but “luckily he wasn’t able to because she was smart enough to fight back.”

The former homeless veteran who was 45 when he was convicted in December continues to deny the charges and asked a judge for leniency at his sentencing Wednesday.

Nolen will serve the two sentences concurrently with credit for one year served.

    At first I thought this was just his way of playing around at a video arcade place called Lucky Strike at Ala Moana Shopping center. You know how a gentlemen plays around with his kids. Then I thought the cops just went and check this guy out illegally after he had left the arcade place. No incident occurred. But the cops stopped over 12 days after at his place and had to detain him. What for? Nothing happened. It was the daughter who might have interpreted the man’s advances as not friendly. So they had to rough him up. Can they use the building cam to prove their point? Even after he left, No evidence found. I guess I was wrong. The girl’s confession does count. With the video.
