Patrick Deguair was sentenced to 20 years in prison for robbing the Aiea Pool Hall in 2007. In March he was also found guilty of a home invasion that happened just a few weeks before the robbery.
On Wednesday his attorney tried to get those sentences combined, reading a heartfelt letter from Deguair's stepmother.
"Since this all started to unfold, I've thought long and hard about all of those formative years and I kept asking myself, 'What did we miss?'" Deguair's attorney, Megan Kau, read from the letter.
"I've got to think about protecting the public. He's done something like this at least twice and been convicted for it twice," Honolulu Circuit Court Judge Glenn Kim said.
Kim sentenced Deguair to 20 years for robbery, kidnapping and burglary, and another 20 years for firearms-related charges.
Kau said he will appeal.
The state is appealing a ruling in a related case. Jermaine Duckworth was allegedly Deguair's partner in the home invasion. He was found murdered.
Kim dismissed a murder charge against Deguair after the case ended twice in a mistrial.
