Former little league softball coach charged with producing child pornography and possessing child pornography

News Release from US DoJ, June 29, 2020

HONOLULU, Hawaii – Rian Harold Ishikawa, 42, of Kailua, was charged on June 29, 2020 by federal complaint with one count of producing child pornography and two counts of possessing child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Kenji M. Price for the District of Hawaii announced that the complaint alleges that the defendant has been and is currently involved with managing and/or coaching youth sports teams, and was the agent and President of Kainalu Little League, Inc. The complaint further alleges, in substance and in part, that the defendant was the subscriber of an email account that contained recorded videos and photographs of what appears to be prepubescent children in a bathroom.

“My office will continue to protect our keiki by vigorously pursuing and prosecuting those who sexually exploit them. The allegations in the complaint, if proven beyond a reasonable doubt, will trigger a penalty that sends an unequivocal message to those who exploit the precious keiki who hold our future in their hands,” said U.S. Attorney Price.

“This case is particularly troubling in light of the defendant’s access to young people,” said Lucy Cabral-DeArmas, acting Special Agent in Charge for Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Honolulu. “HSI will continue to work closely with our federal and local law enforcement partners to investigate those who sexually exploit our young people and ensure that these predators feel the full weight of the law.”

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

This case is being investigated by Homeland Security Investigations. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Craig Nolan.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorney’s Offices and CEOS, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
