Dwelly pleaded guilty to several counts of sexual assault charges.  He will also face five years of HOPE probation.  HOPE stands for Hawaii's Opportunity Probation with Enforcement.  Those in HOPE Probation receive swift, predictable, and immediate sanctions, typically resulting in several days in jail, for each detected violation.
