A federal judge sentenced a 57-year-old man known locally as the Hawaiian Hurricane to eight years in prison for lying to people to get them to “invest” money in his concert promotion business.

Instead of putting the $901,000 he collected from 18 victims into promoting concerts, a rodeo and other events, Turk Cazimero used the money for his personal use.

U.S. District Judge Derrick K. Watson also ordered Cazimero to repay his victims the remaining $857,760 that he stole from them.

Cazimero pleaded guilty to wire fraud last December.

He has a 2002 state conviction for duping 11 victims out of $192,657 in a similar scheme.
