Former prison
guard denies Mililani
rapist charges

Star-Bulletin staff

A former prison guard denied he was the so-called "Mililani rapist" who preyed on teen-age girls walking alone.

James Allen Thompson, 39, accused of abducting four teen-age girls and forcing three of them to perform sex acts, said yesterday he didn't do it.

Thompson is on trial for the third time after two previous efforts to prosecute him ended in mistrial.

He is charged with 22 counts of first-degree sexual assault, first-degree attempted sexual assault, third-degree sexual assault, fourth-degree assault and kidnapping.

The victims, including a fifth girl who escaped but took down the license number of Thompson's car, all identified Thompson as the culprit, Deputy Prosecutor Rom Trader said during the trial.

But Thompson said he was with a high-school friend at Zippy's restaurant and Wal-mart during one of the attacks.
