No verdict yet in 'Aiea dance instructor's trial
Advertiser staffA Circuit Court jury will return Monday to resume deliberations in the case of a former 'Aiea dance instructor charged with molesting five young dance students in 2004 and 2005.
The panel went home this afternoon after more than two days of deliberations on the sex assault charges against Daniel Jones, a former instructor at the Rosalie Woodson Dance Academy in 'Aiea.
Jones is charged with 18 first-degree and third-degree sex assault charges accusing him of molesting the girls at various locations, including the studio.
The jury began deliberations Wednesday after a three-week trial in Circuit Judge Virginia Crandall's courtroom.
