6 month jail, $92K restitution for Kauai domestic abuse case

LIHUE >> A Kauai man must serve six months in jail and pay $92,000 restitution for assaulting his girlfriend and her mother.

The county Office of the Prosecuting Attorney announced Kaeden Palmeira’s sentence in a news release today.

The release says the girlfriend was holding their daughter during the assault last year.

Prosecutors say he became violent when the women went to pick up the child from a party he took her to at Kikiaola Small Boat Harbor.

The restitution amount reflects the mother’s medical bills for injuries from the assault.

Prosecuting Attorney Justin Kollar says Palmeira must begin paying the restitution within 60 days of getting out of jail.
