An Oahu grand jury indicted a convicted sex offender Tuesday charging him with seven counts of sexual assault.

Live Samuelu, 21, made his initial court appearance last Friday.

Court documents say he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl he met on Facebook in March and April of this year.  At the time, Samuelu was on probation after being convicted of eight counts of sexual assault in a separate case from 2011.

Bail on the new charges was set at $250,000.
