Char appointed Kaua‘i judge

HONOLULU — Hawai‘i Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark E. Recktenwald last week appointed Stephanie R.S. Char as District Family Court judge for the Fifth Circuit (Kaua‘i).

Char has been with the state Office of the Public Defender since 2003, and was named supervising deputy public defender in the Kaua‘i office in 2017.

She is a graduate of the University of San Diego School of Law and was admitted to the Hawai‘i State Bar in 2003. She earned bachelor’s degrees in philosophy and communication, and her master’s degree in philosophy, from the University of Denver.

Char has been active in the Kaua‘i community, and currently serves on the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Board of directors and is a member of the Kaua‘i Criminal Defense Bar. She has coached youth soccer and been a member of the Kaua‘i Economic Opportunity Mediation Program Advisory Board.

The chief justice appoints District Court judges from a list of not less than six nominees submitted by the Judicial Selection Commission. If confirmed by the state Senate, Char will serve a term of six years.

    Straight out of Kauai get rid of all the corrupt judges on Kauai and the state Hawaii.

    You know when you have a corrupt judge?

    When they violate your constitutional rights and have their children stalk you in collusion with dirty cops who leak info to criminals in retaliation.

    This is the same with dirty cops and how they use their children or family and friends to stalk to retaliate.

    Public corruption on Kauai is not regulated because they feel like they aren’t being watched.

    They now know.

    Get rid of all the court judges and cops on Kauai.
