Jury finds Anahola Woman Guilty of Felony Bail Jumping | Crime
Līhu‘e – On Tuesday, a jury deliberated less than an hour before finding Maile Tague-Valvieja guilty as charged of Bail Jumping in the First Degree, a class C felony. Chief Judge Randal Valenciano presided over the trial. Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Rebecca Vogt represented the State of Hawai‘i and the Defendant was represented by Deputy Public Defender, Christian Enright.
This case arose from the Defendant failing to appear for her trial date on October 17, 2011. She had been charged with one count of Theft in the Second Degree, a class C felony, and two counts of Fraudulent Use of Credit Card, one of which was a class C felony and one of which was a misdemeanor.
Testimony presented during the less than two day trial showed that the Defendant was given notice of her need to appear for her trial from her bench warrant and bail bond receipt. In addition, the video proceeding of the Defendant’s appearance in court on July 18, 2011 was also shown to the jury, where the judge ordered her back to trial. Moreover, the Defendant’s father testified that he had reminded his daughter to appear for court about four days prior to the October 17 date in which she failed to appear.
Sentencing is scheduled for July 26.
