WAILUKU — A 19-year-old Pukalani man was sentenced to six months in jail for punching a tourist in the face and stealing his shoulder bag.

The Maui News reports as part of a plea arrangement with prosecutors, Shane Keoho was sentenced Tuesday after pleading no contest to second-degree robbery in connection with the incident in April.

Prosecutors dropped a third-degree assault charge against Keoho.

The judge in the case gave him credit for time served, while allowing him to report to jail Monday.

Keoho will also be on probation for five years.
