WAILUKU - Saying he has been on probation "one too many times," a 2nd Circuit judge sentenced a Wailuku man to 10 years in prison Friday for drugs and firearms offenses.
Judge Rhonda Loo followed a plea agreement in sentencing 37-year-old Sean Napolis, who must serve a mandatory minimum of 40 months in prison before being eligible for parole because he is a repeat offender.
"Mr. Napolis, you've been on probation one too many times already," Loo said during his sentencing.
Deputy Public Defender William "Pili" McGrath said, "Sean understands his behavior is . . . unacceptable."
McGrath said Napolis has a good family whom he will miss seeing while behind bars.
"He will suffer the loss of his family for a while. Hopefully, this will get him to reconsider his behavior," McGrath said.
Deputy Prosecutor Tim Tate said that he has prosecuted Napolis in the past. He added that Napolis had said previously that he doesn't know why he always goes back to drugs.
Napolis pleaded no contest to second-degree promotion of a dangerous drug, prohibited acts related to drug paraphernalia, unlawfully possessing a firearm, unlawfully possessing ammunition and failure to keep a pistol or revolver in a proper place, according to court records.
The charges stem from an incident on June 11, 2010.
Napolis' probation also was revoked in a 2009 case where he was charged with a firearm and drug offenses. He was resentenced to the same terms as the current case.
In an unrelated court case, Kaukaleo Francis Mariano, 25, was sentenced to five years in prison Friday for sexually assaulting a boy within a two-year period.
Loo followed a plea agreement during the sentencing. Mariano also was ordered to register as a sex offender and to stay away from the victim in the case.
"Mr. Mariano, your behavior is about low as you can go," Loo said. "Your behavior is sick. You're a sick man."
Loo noted the assault happened when Mariano's sister was baby-sitting the boy.
Deputy Prosecutor Iwalani Mountcastle said Mariano lured the boy, who was 4 or 5 years old at the time, with a lollipop and then sexually assaulted the boy.
Mariano pleaded no contest to reduced charges of third-degree sex assault and first-degree unlawful imprisonment for the incident that occurred between Jan. 27, 2005, and Jan. 27, 2007, records show.
