A former Maui firefighter has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for selling methamphetamine at the Kahului Fire Station.
Juanito Dudoit, 49, was sentenced Tuesday. He had been a firefighter for more than 20 years before resigning after he was arrested last year at the fire station.
Prosecutors said Dudoit was selling meth to fellow firefighters at the station to support his own drug habit.
Deputy Prosecutor Tracy Jones said police found 2.5 grams of methamphetamine during searches of his sleeping quarters and locker. His girlfriend was in his sleeping module and told police they had been smoking meth together.
Jones said Dudoit told police he ingested meth before reporting to work.
The Maui News said Dudoit said in court he made bad decisions and needs treatment.
