Five-year prison sentence in jewelry theft
WAILUKU - A Haiku man with a prior theft conviction was sentenced to a five-year prison term for stealing jewelry from a Kaanapali store last year.
As a repeat offender with a prior theft conviction, Sean Attaguile, 29, was ordered to serve at least one year and eight months of the term before being eligible for parole.
He was sentenced Wednesday, the same day he pleaded no contest to a second-degree theft charge.
"I made a mistake," Attaguile said.
The theft occurred April 3, 2013, when Attaguile went into the Lahaina Scrimshaw store at Whalers Village in Kaanapali and asked to see a pendant, said Deputy Prosecutor Carson Tani.
He said Attaguile left the store before returning and asking to see the pendant again, along with a gold chain. When the store clerk produced the jewelry, Attaguille ran out of the store with the pendant and chain, Tani said.
He said the pendant, valued at $495, was recovered but not the chain, which was valued at $1,995.
Second Circuit Judge Rhonda Loo ordered Attaguile to pay $1,995 in restitution as part of his sentence.
He will serve the prison term at the same time as a five-year prison term he was already serving for a probation revocation in a 2010 theft case.
