HONOLULU -- (KCPQ) -- A man who fathers a child through rape in Hawaii has the same legal rights to custody that any other father does, unless he was convicted for the rape.

Hawaii lawmakers hope to change that. A proposed law would instead allow the courts to deprive rapists of parental rights as long as there’s “clear and convincing evidence” that a child was conceived during a sexual assault.
