Man gets 25 years for sex assaults during Maui burglaries



A man convicted of sexually assaulting women during Maui burglaries has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

The Maui News reported 33-year-old Solo­mone Mahe was ordered to serve at least six years and eight months before being eligible for parole.

Judge Rhonda Loo said the crimes left women feeling unsafe in their homes and that the victims probably suffered psychological damage.

Mahe was convicted of sexually assaulting women during burglaries of five Kahu­lui residences in 2008 and 2009. He apologized in court Wednesday, saying his parents told him to stop drinking.
