A former Hawaiian Airlines ramp agent has been sentenced for taking videos in the women’s locker room.

Kawika Michael Figueroa was sentenced Thursday in state Circuit Court for violation of privacy in the first degree.

Authorities say he placed a cell phone in the ceiling to record female employees in the shower.

An investigation by the Department of the Attorney General and the Sheriff’s Division led to the discovery of the recorded video on Figueroa’s cell phone.

At his sentencing, the complainant expressed how Figueroa’s actions continue to adversely affect her life physically, emotionally, psychologically, and financially.

“This type of criminal conduct was a gross intrusion into a person’s privacy,” Attorney General Doug Chin said in a statement.

The court placed Figueroa in the HOPE (Hawaii’s Opportunity Probation and Enforcement) program for four years and ordered him to serve 30 days in jail, perform 100 hours of community service, enter a sex offender treatment program and pay restitution.

Figueroa had no prior criminal record.

Hawaiian Airlines released the following statement:

“We alerted law enforcement about the incident described by the Attorney General, and worked with law enforcement as they investigated the activity. We also conducted our own investigation, and Mr. Figueroa’s employment with Hawaiian Airlines ended early last September.”
