Ex-insurance agent gets 24 days in jail for swindling elderly people
Former financial advisor, Scott Akashi is sentenced by Judge Richard Perkins, on theft charges for ripping off Lily Ching, 88 and Hiroichi Koza, 90, by promising high returns on their money. Earlier in April, he pleaded no contest to charges that he stole more than $38,000 from the two elderly former clients. Outside the courtroom after the sentencing, (l-r) Koza, Michelle Beckett (who testified for her grandmother, Lily Ching, the other elderly person who was stolen from) and investigator, Garrett Maeda discuss the case. Beckett was the one who found the irregularities with the financial statements concerning her grandmother and tipped off authorities.
