Convicted Kauai Arsonist Sentenced to 10 years

A Hanamaulu, Kauai man convicted of arson and terroristic threatening was sentenced yesterday to 10 years in prison. The Garden Island reports 26-year-old Andrew Dencio Sarita was arrested in June 2012.  He has spent 19 months in jail. Prosecutors say Sarita threatened a friend with a knife and set a bedroom on fire, causing more than $100,000 damage. The judge ruled that Sarita's acts of violence put the community at risk.
