A $20,000 bench warrant has been issued for a former-Big Island woman accused of felony sexual assault of a child.
A Kona grand jury on Feb. 11 indicted 32-year-old Brenda Olione on two counts of first-degree sexual assault of a minor less than 14 years old for allegedly “engaging in sexual penetration” with a minor born in 2001.
The indictment alleges intercourse and oral sex occurred between approximately Aug. 1, 2008, to about Aug. 1, 2010.
First-degree sexual assault of a minor is a class A felony punishable by up to 20 years imprisonment with the Hawaii Paroling Authority ultimately determining the minimum term that must be served before parole eligibility.
A check with the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center turned up no prior convictions for Olione.
According to Big Island police, Olione resided on Oahu at the time the investigation began and the Honolulu Police Department assisted in the investigation.
