HONOLULU – George Alexis Theros, 76, was arrested yesterday and charged by criminal complaint with engaging in illicit sexual conduct in a foreign place, in violation of 18 United States Code § 2423(c). He made an initial appearance in federal court on July 31, 2019.
Kenji M. Price, U.S. Attorney for the District of Hawaii, announced that the criminal complaint charges Theros with sexually abusing a 14 year-old girl on a boat in Panama. The complaint alleges that witnesses in Panama reported acts of sexual conduct Theros committed on the girl, whom he had claimed was his daughter. Witnesses in Thailand reported that, years ago, Theros paid the girl’s family in Thailand in order to “adopt” her when she was nine or ten years old. The witnesses also reported that the girl then proceeded to live with Theros in his home in Thailand.
