A 66-year-old Makiki woman was sentenced last week to 300 hours of community service and ordered to pay thousands of dollars in restitution to the family of a woman she hit and killed in a Moilili crosswalk in 2009.
Pamela Knez was sentenced for third-degree negligent homicide and agreed to the community service and to paying $28,000 in restitution, according to the Honolulu Prosecutor’s Office. She also had her license suspended for a year.
Knez was driving a car that hit 79-year-old Mal Sun Chun, of Aiea, who was in a crosswalk on South King Street near the old Star Market. Chun, a retired Ilikai Hotel housekeeper, had just gotten off a bus and was walking with her friends when she was hit.
Because Knez’s traffic abstract was clean and she had no criminal history, she could have the conviction wiped from her record if she completes the terms set by the court.
