Convicted robber sentenced to additional 40 years

By Rob Shikina

LAST UPDATED: 01:16 p.m. HST, May 21, 2014

A Circuit Court judge on Wednesday sentenced a 36-year-old man already serving 20 years for an Aiea pool hall robbery to an additional 40 years for his "outrageous behavior" in a separate home invasion robbery.

Patrick Deguair was found guilty in March of robbery, kidnapping, burglary, and firearm charges in connection with a 2007 Maili home invasion robbery. Deguair and three other people disguised as federal DEA agents burst into a home and robbed the residents at gunpoint.

Judge Glenn Kim said, "This defendant was clearly the ringleader of this whole operation." Rejecting a plea for Deguair to serve concurrent sentences, Kim said the invasion was "outrageous behavior and it's not going to be tolerated by ... this court."

Deguair had been accused of murdering a fellow suspect in the home invasion, Jermaine Duckworth, because Duckworth spoke to police about the invasion. Two juries deadlocked in separate trials, and Kim dismissed the murder charge.

Deguair was convicted in 2012 of robbing Aiea Cue in 2008, a week after Duckworth's body was found at the bottom of a cliff near Yokohama Bay.

How could he have done the home invasion if he was already serving 20 years for the robbery? Did the liberal judges let him out early, or did they fail to put him in jail before he committed another crime?

Gee, I don't know. Maybe read the article and use your brain your figure it out?

"Deguair was convicted in 2012 of robbing Aiea Cue in 2008." "Patrick Deguair was found guilty in March of robbery, kidnapping, burglary, and firearm charges in connection with a 2007 Maili home invasion robbery."

What does that all mean? Deguair committed the two robberies prior to being taken into custody for any offense. He was later apprehended and convicted of the 2008 Aiea robbery in 2012, and he was sentenced to 20 years. While still in custody for the 20-year term, he was tried and convicted in March 2014 for the 2007 Maile robbery, in which the judge issued a consecutive 40-year sentence.

Oh my god, that was so hard to figure out.

Thank you Judge Glenn Kim!

We can sleep a little better knowing that an evil, dangerous man is locked up and not getting out any time soon.

Hopefully, the next person who thinks about doing this will know about what happened when Patrick Deguair showed up in your courtroom and have a drink and go to bed instead.

Going to cost us hard working tax payers $41,000 a year for his room and board or about 2.5 mil if he lives the whole term. The few ruin it for the many.

The prison and jail population in America has quadrupled since 1980 with the war on drugs. Mandatory minimum sentences have propelled America to the country with the largest population of incarcerated citizens. I wonder if they put the cost of housing, staff, food, etc., into the federal deficit, or count it as an unfunded liability?
