A 37-year-old Princeville was sentenced on Thursday to one year in prison and five years probation in a drunken driving incident on Kauai that left a man seriously injured.
The incident happened on March 6, 2012 near the Hale Moi condominium in Princeville.
Prosecutors say Jonathan Swift sideswiped a pedestrian and failed to stop his van and render aid. Multiple witnesses reported Swift's erratic driving. One of the witnesses followed Swift a short distance to his residence and convinced him to return to the scene.
Swift had a 0.10 blood alcohol content, 0.02 BAC above the legal limit.
The victim, an Arizona man, suffered a fractured clavicle, a fractured rib and a detached retina after being struck by the van's side mirror.
"Drunk driving is a violent crime, and causes immeasurable pain and suffering in our community. We thank the witnesses and investigators that helped us reach a successful resolution in this case," said Prosecuting Attorney Justin Kollar.
