Army sergeant sentenced for fatal hit-and-run incident

The Honolulu Star Advertiser reported “Hit-and-run driver sentenced” (May 11, 2012):

A state judge sentenced the hit-and-run driver who killed 18-year-old bicyclist Zachary Manago to the maximum 10-year prison term Thursday for leaving the scene of the fatal traffic accident in 2010.

In addition, Circuit Judge Edward H. Kubo Jr. ordered Army Sgt. Doug­las Curtis to pay Manago’s mother $4,233 for her son’s funeral expenses and to pay $500 into a state special fund for neurotrauma victims.


Curtis is also facing discharge from the Army because he cannot remain in the military with a felony conviction, his lawyer Jonathan Burge said.
