Comment:

Hilo Circuit Judge Glenn Hara ordered a 10-year prison sentence for 27-year-old Joshua Lopes-Keli, which will run “consecutively to the 10-year-term he’s serving for a 2010 robbery conviction.”  Keli will have to serve a minimum of 40 months before becoming eligible for parole.  In the furlough-jumping case, police arrested Keli for first-degree terroristic threatening and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
