Puna woman sentenced in marijuana case

By Ken Hupp - 67AM KPUA News

A 36-year old Puna woman has been sentenced to 60 days in jail and five years probation for promoting a detrimental drug. Shonna Soares was also ordered this week by Circuit Judge Glenn Hara to pay a $1,000 drug demand reduction fee and forfeit all firearms and ammunition. Police executed a search warrant on property occupied by Soares and vacant lots adjoining her property in August of 2011, where they recovered 69 marijuana plants, 7 unregistered firearms and ammunition from the premises.


As a result of this investigation, police officers also seized for forfeiture $5,000 in cash, a 2006 Ford F-350 truck, a 2007 Kawasaki Mule, a 2000 Harley Davidson Replica motorcycle, and two large flat screen televisions, all of which were forfeited to the State of Hawai‘i in a separate administrative forfeiture proceeding.


In handing down the sentence, Hara rejected the defendant’s request to defer her guilty plea and delay serving her jail sentence until after the holidays.
