Let me get this straight, a 54-year-old man is ordered to stay away from Molokai for five years as part of his probation (The Maui News, April 2)? This guy pleaded guilty to first- and second-degree assault and gets probation with credit from time served of 18 months.
Let's see, first-degree assault is a 10-year term and second-degree assault is a five-year prison term. He has past convictions of robbery, burglary, first-degree assault, kidnapping and first-degree terroristic threatening. Most of these past crimes are 10-year terms. Now he gets probation?
What's wrong with this picture?
