WAILUKU - A Haiku man was given credit for nearly three months he had spent in jail and placed on five years' probation Tuesday for convictions for firearm violations.
Gregory Rummans, 52, was arrested Dec. 28, 2007, when police responded to a report that two men were target shooting off Piilani Highway near Mile Marker 19 in Kanaio.
When officers stopped a red sport utility vehicle described by the caller, Rummans was a passenger in the vehicle driven by his younger brother, according to police reports.
Officers searched the vehicle, finding two pistols and a shotgun, according to court records. Rummans told police he had been shooting a revolver that he found. None of the firearms was registered, and one had been stolen in California, police reported.
Rummans had pleaded no contest to keeping a firearm and ammunition in an improper place and failing to acquire a firearm permit.
In court, he said he had been clean and sober since April 1.
Second Circuit Judge Joseph Cardoza denied Rummans' request for a chance to keep the convictions off his record.
His brother, Nicholas Rummans, 47, was sentenced last year to a one-year jail term as part of five years' probation for the firearms offenses.
