10 years for former Hilo teacher's meth conviction

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) A former Big Island special education teacher already serving a five-year federal prison term for a meth conviction will still have to serve an additional 10 years on a state drug charge, despite an appeals court ruling.

Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports former Keaukaha Elementary School teacher Lynn Marie Dionise was re-sentenced this week in state court for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. An appeals court had overturned the consecutive portion of her sentence and ordered a new sentencing before a different judge.

But that judge again imposed a consecutive sentence, despite her claims that she's changed in a federal California prison.

Dionise was arrested in 2008 after police found 6.8 grams of crystal meth, marijuana and more than $13,000 in cash at her condominium.
