Attorney General Doug Chin announced that the Department of the Attorney General has charged Alexander Aipolani Jr. with four counts of failure to comply with covered offender registration requirements.

Aipolani was convicted of kidnapping with intent to commit a sexual offense and sentenced to five years probation in 1984. He was also convicted of sexual assault in the second degree in 1993 in a case involving a minor under the age of 14. Aipolani was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for that crime.

Following his release from prison, Aipolani was required to register as a sex offender. He failed to report to the chief of police in person within 30 days of his birthday in 2013, 2014 and 2015.

He also failed to report a new address to the attorney general and the Hawaii criminal justice data center within three days of moving, as required by law.

“My office has been diligent in tracking down and charging sex offenders who do not comply with registration requirements,” Attorney General Chin said. “We have charged almost 10 of these offenders since April of this year alone.”


The charges against Aipolani carry a sentence of up to five years in prison for each offense.


Aipolani is presumed innocent unless and until he is found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Attorney General Chin reminds the public that they can view an online directory of Hawai‘i registered sex offenders and other covered offenders, and sign-up for email alerts through the department’s award-winning “Hawaii Sex Offender Search” mobile app (IOSAndroid).
