Corrections officer charged with smuggling contraband into Oahu Community Correctional Center

News Release from USDoJ, June 5, 2020

HONOLULU, Hawaii – Jon Estabilio, Jr., 45, of Honolulu, Hawaii, was charged today by federal complaint with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute, providing or possessing contraband in prison, and bribery of public officials. Estabilio has been remanded to federal custody pending further proceedings.

U.S. Attorney Kenji M. Price for the District of Hawaii announced that the complaint alleges that on June 3, 2020, Estabilio, an adult corrections officer at the Oahu Community Correctional Center (“OCCC”) was searched administratively after prison call information suggested Estabilio was smuggling contraband into the prison. Several packs of cigarettes, lighters, tattoo kits, and a total of 16 small zip lock baggies containing methamphetamine were found on Estabilio.

“The complaint in this case describes the egregious conduct of a corrections officer who chose to endanger the OCCC community rather than protect it, by smuggling the very same poison that destroys the lives of so many in our communities into OCCC. My office will not tolerate corrections officers who engage in such conduct and will aggressively prosecute those who do to the fullest extent of the law,” said U.S. Attorney Price.

"The alleged behavior will not be tolerated in our community. It is a FBI priority to investigate allegations of wrongdoing from those who have taken an oath to protect our citizens. We must always hold our law enforcement and corrections officers to the highest standards of accountability and integrity," said Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Eli S. Miranda.

The charges in the complaint are merely allegations, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

This prosecution was investigated by the FBI. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean Van Demark.
