This monster is already getting off with being charged for a lesser crime!! DO NOT add insult to injury by letting him out early on top of it!!
What a total failure of the justice system here in Hawaii, yet again.
Ten years minus 4 months time served equals 9 years, 8 months to go. Why is this MURDERER even eligible to ask for parole? He already was free for 12 years, poisoning his children. This is a triple tragedy. And what that other person said about no cord being found, so what? He had motive and based on what he did and how he acted before, just shows he did it. Besides, if he was innocent, why would he plead no contest?
Just saw this on Dateline. What a horrible, nightmarish ordeal for the Mendonca family. Shameless, inept Kauai prosecutors and judicial system that allowed this p.o.s wife beater to get years of delays and an effed up plea deal. Darrin Galas then brainwashed his kids against their murdered mother and loving, super long suffering grandparents. He’s a disgusting monster and this is such a travesty of justice. He seriously has to know that you can’t do so much evil and expect to not have some bad karma come back to you!!
I truly hope that Sandra’s sons realized what actually happened and know how much they’re mother loved them and that their father brainwashed them for years !!! I’m a mom of six
And I just finished watching this. Their Mom Loved them. I hope and pray that the boys have reconnected with their Grandparents!!
He deserves to serve all ten years behind bars and admit to his sons the truth
Does anyone know who finished raising Sandra’s sons? Their step mother?
