A man involved in a failed jewelry store robbery that was caught on tape was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison.
Defendant Trey Akana-Pulido was charged with first-degree robbery, arson, and firearms violations among a slew of other crimes.
At just 22 years old, Akana-Pulido has a lengthy rap sheet.
"Putting all these cases together, it looks like the defendant really went on a vicious crime spree and put a lot of people's lives in danger," said prosecutor Dean Young.
The two-time felon faced sentencing on 10 criminal counts on Monday.
One of Akana-Pulido's run-ins with the law was captured on surveillance video in April of 2011. In the video, you could see him using a hammer in a botched attempt to rob the Zales jewelry store in Waikele.
His accomplice was 28-year-old Mark Ahnee. He was killed just days after the robbery by police on Kalanianaole Highway after firing at authorities with a sawed-off shotgun.
Akana-Pulido said he wants to end his criminal record once and for all.
"I'm not a bad person. I made a lot of bad choices in my life," said Akana-Pulido. "I'm sure it's obvious to everyone here, but I plead guilty to accept responsibility and accept my consequences."
Judge Michael Wilson demanded Akana-Pulido remember the victims of his crimes.
"You know the names of any of the people who were at Zales? You think it was frightening for the people at Zales? You think you affected their lives?" said Wilson.
Akana-Pulido didn't have an answer. The judge then sentenced him to 20 years in prison with a 3-year minimum before he is eligible for parole.
