Kauai police arrested a non-compliant sex offender at the Kukui'ula Small Boat Harbor in Koloa on Thursday.

Bernard Almeida Jr., 59, of Koloa, was arrested and charged with 14 felony counts of non-compliance.  Almeida is a registered sex offender who has failed to register since August of last year.

He is currently being held at the Kaua'i Community Correctional Center in lieu of $13,000 bail.

According to the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney, Almeida is scheduled to appear in District Court on Wednesday at 1 p.m.

State law requires registered sex offenders to keep their registration information, including their contact information, updated and accurate. Failing to do so is a Class C felony, punishable by up to five years imprisonment for each violation.

The Hawai'i Criminal Justice Data Center, an agency of the state Department of the Attorney General, keeps a public listing of all registered sex offenders in the state.  To search for a registered sex offender, visit the HCJDC website at www.ehawaii.gov/sexoffender.
