Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph N. Camacho has found probable cause to warrant the filing of charges against Dan Kalikohua Johnson, a 35-year-old musician accused of sexually abusing a minor.
At a preliminary hearing Thursday afternoon, probable cause was found that the crimes of attempted sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree, sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree, assault and battery, and disturbing the peace were committed.
Camacho, however, dismissed another count of disturbing the peace as he did not find probable cause that the crime was committed.
The judge ordered Johnson to answer the charges during his arraignment on Sept. 17 at 9am and remanded him to the custody of the Department of Corrections.
Assistant public defender Douglas Hartig served as counsel for the defendant. Chief prosecutor Peter Prestley represented the government at the hearing.
Police arrested Johnson on Aug. 23.
At the time, Associate Judge David A. Wiseman imposed a $50,000 cash bail on Johnson but allowed him to post 10 percent of the amount or $5,000 cash.
Police detective Josef P. Deleon Guerrero stated in his report that he had received a call on June 24, 2012, about a girl who ran away from home. Later that night, Deleon Guerrero said the girl called him, saying she was at her aunt's residence in Kagman II.
The detective said he met with the girl and asked her why she ran away from home. The girl reportedly confessed that Johnson sexually abused her on May 17, 2009.
The Office of the Attorney General subsequently filed charges against the musician.
