Sexual Assault Allegations

On Thursday, March 8, 2018 a grand jury in Honolulu​​ charged Rika Shimizu for sexually assaulting a bedridden 16-year-old exchange student multiple times at a boarding home she operates in Honolulu. [2]

The grand jury charged Rika Shimizu with five counts of second-degree sexual assault ​ and four counts of fourth-degree sexual assault.

Second-degree assault is a class B felony that carries a maximum of up to 10 years in prison. The fourth-degree assault is a misdemeanor that carries penalties of up to a year in jail.Her bail is set at $600,000. [2]

Shortly before the grand jury returned the indictment, she appeared in Family Court after prosecutors charged her with five counts of second-degree sexual assault. Rika Shimizu did not speak and kept her head down throughout her initial court appearance. [2]

According to a court document detailing the allegations, the victim reported to the Honolulu Police Department ​ that his dormitory supervisor, identified as Rika Shimizu, sexually assaulted him at least 10 times from October to February. [2]

The victim told police the first assault occurred in October. At the time, he was bedridden for several weeks due to a head injury ​. The court document said he was unable to go to the bathroom alone, prepare meals or change clothes. [2]

During one late October night, police said she entered his room where she sexually assaulted him. [2]

The victim repeatedly told her to stop and that he was going to report her, according to document. Police said Shimizu told the boy that if he told anyone, she would tell everyone that he had raped ​ her. [2]

Rika Shimizu also threatened to have him thrown out of the exchange student program, expelled from school and implied his family would lose more than $20,000 that they had paid for him to be in the exchange program, according to court documents. [2]

The victim said the last assault occurred in early February 2018 when Rika Shimizu unlocked his room using her own key and sexually assaulted him, police said. [2]

The victim’s attorney, Micky Yamatani, said the teen called his mother and told her of the assaults. She immediately contacted a family friend to take him out of the boarding house. The victim’s mother then flew to Hawaii from Japan. [2]

The teen reported the assaults to police at the main Honolulu Police Department headquarters. [2]

Police arrested Rika Shimizu on Tuesday at a Kanewai Street residence, near the University of Hawaii at Manoa ​ campus, on suspicion of 12 counts of first-degree sexual assault and 10 counts of third-degree sexual assault. [2]

Yamatani described the assaults as “egregious.” [2]

“He was an innocent resident of a so-called boarding house being run by this defendant who represented herself as the ‘boarding house mother’ who promised the victim a safe and healthy environment to study English and to experience the American schooling here in Hawaii,” Yamatani said in an e-mailed statement. [2]

“This is a case of sheer betrayal of the trust this victim and his family endowed on this woman. Instead of providing a healthy and nurturing environment, the defendant engaged in sexual assaults of this minor child. We truly want to emphasize here that this crime involved a minor child,” she added. [2]

Shimizu served as the victim’s legal guardian while he lived in the boarding house. [2]

Yamatani said they are “sadly aware that there are those out there who have made the statements to the effect that (the) victim somehow enjoyed these sexual advances from someone 20 years (his) senior.” [2]

“To those who make such statements, we want to make it crystal clear that this victim is a young Japanese person who came to Hawaii to study English and to learn the American culture. He has been greatly betrayed by this woman, injured by this woman, been traumatized by this experience, and he looks forward to the day where our American justice system would set forth the truth and punish the person who harmed, hurt, and injured him,” she said.
