Circuit Judge Paul B.K. Wong sentenced Myisha Lee Armitage in the death of Kaulana Werner, a 2015 Kamehameha Schools graduate. Armitage received two 10-year prison terms for negligent homicide and accidents involving death or serious bodily injury. The terms are to run concurrently which means the terms will run at the same time.
The April 2016 crash occurred on Farrington Highway, a block away from Werner’s home.
He was crossing the highway when he was struck by a vehicle operated by Armitage.
She testified in August that she had two drinks and blacked out when something hit her car.
Police said she was traveling eastbound and speeding when officers arrested her about a half-mile from the crash site.
Her blood alcohol content was 0.13 at the time of the crash. The legal threshold is .08.
Werner attended Sterling College in Kansas after graduating from Kamehameha Schools where he was a varsity football player. He returned to Hawaii after one semester to help care for his ailing mother.
