HONOLULU – Governor Linda Lingle announced today that she granted pardons to six individuals in 2008, in accordance with the power vested in her by the Hawai‘i State Constitution (Article V, Section 5).
“These individuals made mistakes, which for some were one-time, isolated incidents.  They served their sentences and completed probation, and have led law-abiding lives,” said Governor Lingle.
Shelley May Nulton (also known as Shelley Gillis) was found guilty of assault in the third degree, a misdemeanor, on December 1, 1992.  She was sentenced to one year probation and a $100 fine.  She was discharged from probation on December 1, 1993.  The incident was Nulton’s only arrest.  Nulton was pardoned on March 10, 2008.
Susitana Tuisamoa Van (also known as Susitana Hardiman) pled guilty to and was convicted of assault in the third degree, a petty misdemeanor on December 17, 1999.  She was sentenced to one year probation.  She completed her probation without incident and her probation ended on December 17, 2000.  This incident was Van’s only arrest.  Van’s pardon was granted on April 23, 2008.
Christopher M. Marble was found guilty on January 10, 1989 of criminal trespass in the second degree, a petty misdemeanor.  He was sentenced to a $50 fine.  The incident was his only conviction.  Marble’s pardon was granted on May 22, 2008.
Kelley Eileen Mee Lan Lau was found guilty on February 16, 2000, of assault in the third degree, a petty misdemeanor.  She was sentenced to six months probation.  She was resentenced on September 12, 2000, and her probation was extended for three months in order to allow her to complete the Alternatives to Violence program.  Lau was previously convicted on August 9, 1985 for criminal contempt of court, a misdemeanor offense, for which she was fined $25.  Lau was pardoned on July 7, 2008.
Denise Antoinette Martinez (now known as Denise Antoinette Kekumu and formerly known as Denise Antoinette Cabinatan, Denise Givan and Denise Souza) was arrested for committing seven offenses between March 13, 1980 and April 9, 1981.  She was convicted twice for promoting a dangerous drug in the second degree (felony), three times for prostitution (misdemeanor), once for disorderly conduct and once for criminal contempt of court (misdemeanor).  For the drug conviction, Martinez was sentenced to 30 days confinement and five years probation.  She was assessed a variety of fines for the other convictions.  Martinez completed her probation on time on October 6, 1986.  She has remained arrest-free since her last conviction in 1981.  Martinez was pardoned on August 13, 2008.
Duane Marco Molina was convicted of abuse of a family or household member on August 4, 1992.  He was sentenced to 60 days confinement, one year of probation, and one year suspended sentence, with 57 days of confinement time suspended.  He complied with all of the terms and conditions of his probation and was discharged from probation on April 6, 1993.  Except for a prior 1974 DUI arrest in California, Molina had no criminal record before his conviction and has remained arrest-free ever since.  Molina was pardoned on August 13, 2008.
Governor Lingle has pardoned 77 individuals since taking office.
