Leroy C. Rodrigues Sr - 71 year old Repeat Sex Offender

A 71-year-old convicted sex offender was indicted today for alleged sexual assaults on a juvenile girl.

Leroy C. Rodrigues Sr. of Waipi'o was charged with first-degree sex assault and three counts of fourth-degree sex assault. A $100,000 warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Rodrigues was charged last month with second-degree sex assault in the same case but the charge was upgraded today to first-degree sex assault. In addition, the indictment added the three counts of fourth-degree sex assault.

Rodrigues has been free on bail since being charged last month.

If convicted of the current charges, Rodrigues faces up to 20 years in prison.

In October 1955, Rodrigues was convicted of sexual abuse of a girl under the age of 16. He was sentenced to five years probation.
