[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

A state judge sentenced karate sensei Michael Shimabukuro to five years in prison today for sexually molesting one of his students starting in 2005 when the boy was 12.

Circuit Judge Randal. K.O. Lee ordered state sheriff deputies to immediately take Shimabukuro into custody to begin serving his sentence.

Shimabukuro, 34, had been free on $150,000 bail since a jury found him guilty last October of three counts of third-degree sexual assault.
