Lawsuit Alleges Another Pedophile Ring at KSBE
by Andrew Walden
A new set of child molestation allegations is the subject of a lawsuit against Kamehameha Schools filed April 3, 2020, in Hawaii’s First Circuit Court.
Former Kamehameha School student Daniel K Kaohimaunu, represented by attorneys Ilana K Waxman and Mililani Trask, alleges ‘grooming’ began in 1978 when Kaohimaunu was in 7th grade. Kaohimaunu alleges he was raped by now-dead homosexual, Eugene Turchi, who was not employed by Kamehameha Schools, yet somehow was given free access to the campus and to students.* According to the complaint, for several years in the 1980s, Turchi was waved through the gates by KSBE security as Turchi regularly took Kaohimaunu off campus for drug-laced “pedophile parties” with other homosexuals.
Akamai readers will remember that dead Mafia Godfather Larry Mehau received a $40,000 per month ‘oral, no-bid contract’ to provide front gate security at Kamehameha in the 1980s and 1990s. (See Broken Trust pg 202.)
Other alleged perpetrators include a former Kamehameha English teacher who now lives in Palm Springs, a local photographer, and most notably, Robert Hololua Stender, a kumu hula who resigned as Kamehameha Executive Vice President for Education in January, 2018. Just weeks earlier, Stender had co-authored Kamehameha Schools’ December 15, 2017, letter formally apologizing to student victims of dead child molester Robert Browne.
According to the lawsuit: “On or about January 29th, 2018, KS’ CEO Jack Wong announced Stender, then Executive Vice President of Education, would step down from his position and retire. Stender’s retirement occurred within the same month, i.e., January, 2018, in which KS’s investigators heard Kaohimaunu report Stender had sexually abused and assaulted him.” (p12)
The lawsuit also alleges the plaintiff was contacted in early 2018 by a private investigator hired by Kamehameha. (p16)
Stender did not respond to a request for comment.
