Jill Hansen: The Hawaiian Road Menace

     Jill Anjuli Hansen, a 30-year-old blonde with a figure that made Barbie seem bloated, aspired to become a professional surfer. A resident of Honolulu's Maunalani Heights neighborhood, Hansen also claimed to be a model and owner of a swimsuit line. But in her community, if Hansen was known for anything, it was for being a violence-prone woman who drove like a maniac.

     In 2010, Hanson was convicted twice for speeding. A year later, police caught her driving without a license and car insurance. Local officers arrested her three times in 2014 for speeding, including driving 72 in a 35-MPH zone. The Maunalani Heights Neighborhood Watch Group's 500 members were alerted to Hansen and her reckless driving habit. A representative of the group reportedly said: "We need everybody to be on the lookout for her, it's that scary. Two people were almost run over by her. One person had a head-on collision with Hansen."

     On April 18, 2014, Honolulu police arrested Hansen on a charge of third-degree assault. The judge in that case ordered her to undergo mental evaluation. (According to Hansen's father, she had solicited someone to murder him on Facebook. As a result, he obtained a restraining order against her.)

     On Wednesday, May 14, 2014, in the Diamond Head section of Waikiki, 73-year-old Elizabeth Conklin got out of her BMW 328 Wagon in the parking garage to her apartment complex. As Conklin walked away from her vehicle, Jill Hansen, who had followed her into the parking area, slammed her gray Volkswagen Passat into the woman, knocking her twenty feet.

     Following the impact, Hansen climbed out of her VW and walked over to the injured woman who was writhing in pain on the garage floor. Instead of calling 911, Hansen returned to her car, climbed in, and was about to take another run at the downed woman when a building employee named Chris Khory grabbed a crow bar and smashed out Hansen's back window.

     Mr. Khory's timely intervention caused Hansen to exit the Volkswagen and flee the scene on foot. Paramedics rushed the victim to a nearby hospital where doctors treated Conklin for numerous cuts and bruises.

     At the hospital, the victim told police officers that the attack was not the result of an earlier road-rage incident. She believed her attacker had followed her home with the intent of stealing her car. "I parked in my normal parking place," she said. "I got out and all of a sudden woke up in an ambulance. She saw my car, it was the car she wanted. She followed me and was going to kill me to get the car."

     An hour or so after running down Elizabeth Conklin in the Waikiki parking garage, Jill Hansen was on her computer updating her Facebook page with a photograph of the victim's BMW. She also informed her Facebook friends and readers that she had just been accepted into the Association of Surfing Professionals. "I am becoming a professional!" she wrote. "I have worked soooo hard to get to where I am today. I am so grateful for the support of surfers and the ASP."

     Police officers arrested Hansen at her apartment seven hours after she intentionally plowed into the 73-year-old victim. Officers booked the suspect into jail on the charge of attempted murder. The judge set her bail at $1 million.

     In August 2014, the authorities charged Hansen, while awaiting trial at the Women's Correctional Center in Kailua, with violating the protection order acquired by her father. (I'm not sure how she managed this while in custody.)

     Circuit Judge Richard Perkins, on September 25, 2014, following a series of psychiatric evaluations of Hansen, found her mentally unfit to stand trial. The judge ordered her to undergo treatment at a local mental health facility.

    After regaining her connection to reality through anti-psychotic medication, Jill Hansen went on trial in Honolulu on the charge of second-degree attempted murder. She waived her right to a jury in favor of a so-called bench trial where the judge determined issues of law and fact.

     The principal witness during Hansen's 4-day trial on August 23, 2015 involved three mental health experts brought to the stand by the defendant's attorney, Victor Bakke. The psychiatrists, pursuant to Hansen's insanity defense, testified that she had injured the victim while suffering from a psychosis that had rendered her incapable of distinguishing right from wrong. She had therefore been incapable of forming the requisite criminal intent.

     On August 27, 2015, Judge Richard Perkins found Hansen, due to her state of mind at the time of the assault, not criminally responsible. Instead of prison, she was sent to a state hospital where she will remain until her doctors determine she can be safely released back into society.

  4. First, and foremost Jill knows that I genuinely Love and Support Female Surfers, and She has always been nice to me (which is more than I can say about so many others within The Surfing Community). When Jill is ‘thinking-clearly,’ she is one helluva surfer. I have seen her ‘rip‘ on long boards as well as short boards. Sadly (as so many others), she befriended some, who were never her friends, but instead, were simply “vampires.”

  5. She has been targeted and framed. The old lady is a perp paid to harass Jill, together with other perps they work 24/7 to harass Jill until she emotionally explode, as she finally did. The bmw picture on the Facebook page is clearly posted by somebody who control her Facebook account, not by Jill. This is what is called Gangstalking, and is dark game to drive somebody to a Psichiatric Hospital or to commit suicide. She's a victim.

  6. The preceding comment is atrocious. I've had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Conklin for more than a decade, and she's a lovely woman - both inside and out. She's devoted herself to charitable causes, and is one of the most truly selfless individuals I have ever known. She would give the shirt off of her back to anyone in need. Elizabeth works to improve the social condition and brings love and joy to those around her. She was a trailblazer in the business world and became a successful business owner through her hard work and determination when men dominated the workforce, and is generous of both heart and spirit. She accomplished more in 1 year of her life than her assailant could hope to accomplish in a lifetime. The defendant is a lowlife who deserves to spend the rest of her life locked away.

  7. I have over 200 emails form Jill in a years timeline where she stated "I am doing "Satan's Doctrine" today .. which means running over someone with the car you want.. then you get to keep the car and home of the christian" ... Its her family and the local Police that enabled her to attack innocent victims . I sent 5 emails from Jill to the Wakiki Police and they did nothing but say Call 911 next time. Her mom and sister and the local police are just as guilty for keeping this violent Fucktard drug addict loose to fight in the water, speed in the streets and threaten 14 people EVERY day

  8. she was a nutt case, unfortunately. Her psychosis was out of control and kept saying that Jamie O'brien and Sierra Quitquit had plan to kill because her Dad had instructed them to do it. She kept saying she was supposed to be a millionaire but her Dad was denying her all the money.
    She needs to be kept in a mental facility for the sake of her and all other people.
