Kauai man gets ten-year sentence for arson, threat
A Hanamaulu man received a ten-year sentence in prison for threatening a friend and torching a bedroom.
Andrew Sarita was arrested in June of 2012 and has spent the last 19 months in jail according to the Garden Island.
Prosecutors say Sarita caused more than $100,000 in damage.
When Sarita was 16 years old, he was sentenced to five years in prison for an attempted assault on a Kauai High School teacher who had to take refuge in a vehicle.
The arson incident happened three years after his release.
