Santos sentenced to five years

Clyde Santos, 39, of Kapa‘a, was re-sentenced by Fifth Circuit Court Chief Judge Masuoka to five years in prison for theft in the second degree after being found in violation of the terms and conditions of his probation, prosecutors said.

Santos was placed on probation for this felony offense on Dec. 30, 2004. Prosecutors filed a motion to revoke his probation on July 1, 2005, after his probation officer reported that Santos tested positive for marijuana and methamphetamine use, failed to provide his probation officer with verification of attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings, failed to appear for appointments with his probation officer, and failed to inform his probation officer of his current address, prosecutors said.

Special conditions to Graham’s probation include her serving five days in jail in addition to any time already served, performing 600 hours of community-service work, and completing a substance-abuse evaluation and treatment as recommended, prosecutors said.
