In July 2022, a jury found Wilson guilty of manslaughter. Manslaughter is a Class A felony and punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
“Life is not the same without my son. We waited almost six years for this, your honor. So after six years, I've been taunted -- six years living in hell, waiting for this day, for justice," Kaho’oilihala's father said at the sentencing hearing.
Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney Steve Alm issued the following statement on the sentencing:
“I am very pleased with Judge Wong’s sentence in this case, which sends a strong message that drunk driving will not be tolerated in the City and County of Honolulu. Wilson’s reckless disregard for the safety of others resulted in the death of Troy Kaho‘oilihala, a promising young man who was much loved by his family and the community. Although this sentence will not bring Troy back to his loved ones, I thank the Kaho‘oilihala family for their patience as this 5-year chapter comes to a close."
