With the title, "CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS: How Should You Vote?", this live 90-minute program will feature four Hawaii experts who will debate the pros and cons on the four proposed amendments to the State Constitution.

Appearing on the show with host, Robert LeClair, attorney and Department Chair of Kapiolani Community College's Legal Education Department , will be:

  • Susan Arnett, Esq., Deputy Public Defender, Office of the Public Defender
  • Mark Bennett, Esq., Attorney General, State of Hawaii
  • Peter Carlisle, Esq., Prosecuting Attorney, City and County of Honolulu
  • Brook Hart, Esq., Law Office of Brook Hart, formerly the Public Defender for the State of Hawaii.

Mr. LeClair predicts a lively but cordial discussion around the four amendments. Issues involved in the proposed amendments include the Sex Offender Registry Web Site, protection of communications between alleged sexual assault victims and their rape counselors, the giving of additional authority to the Legislature regarding the definition of certain sex crimes, and the "information charging controversy."
