Oahu Men Receive Sentences of 130 and 120 Months in Prison Following Federal Carjacking Convictions

News Release from U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Hawaii, Friday, July 14, 2023

HONOLULU –Senior United States District Judge Helen Gillmor imposed prison sentences of 130 months on Treston Cory Kawailani Hardin, 35, of Waiawa, Hawaii, and 120 months on Anthony Kelii Mark, 31, of Wahiawa, Hawaii on July 13 and 14, 2023, respectively, for carjacking.

According to information presented to the court, on March 14, 2020, Hardin and Mark drove a stolen car to the Waipio Soccer Complex and parked alongside the victim, who was seated in the driver’s seat of a Nissan truck. Hardin then exited his car, walked over to the victim’s truck, opened his passenger’s side door, and displayed a bolt-action shotgun. Hardin then loaded a round into the shotgun and pointed the shotgun at the victim. Mark then approached the victim’s truck from the driver’s side and ordered the victim out of the truck. The victim complied and fled, as Hardin and Mark took his truck.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders works together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.

The Honolulu Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives conducted the investigation that resulted in the convictions. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Gregg Paris Yates and Darren W.K. Ching handled the prosecution.
