Kepueli Talaiasi Biography
Who is Kepueli Talaiasi?
An Arizona man was charged in Alaska with abusive s*xual contact with a 16-year-old girl who was sitting next to her on a flight from Phoenix to Anchorage.
Kepueli Talaiasi, 58, of Mesa, allegedly touched the young woman, an unidentified woman, while she was sitting somewhere between him and her adult son, who slept most of the flight.
The office asked the federal court to order the continued detention of Talaiasi. He posed a threat to potential partners in the siege if he boarded a plane to return to Arizona to await trial.
The girl managed to convey a message to her father, who was in a different row of seats on the plane, and contacted the flight crew who separated Talaiasi’s daughter, the office said.
Talaiasi was arrested after the plane reached Anchorage, the office said.
According to the memo, in an interview with the FBI, Talaiasi admitted “that he had bad thoughts when he saw the miner next to him and described the devil who tempted him” and said that he “succumbed to temptation.”
No thalaiasis attorney has been named in online court records to speak on his behalf.
