Case Notes


  Neither this chapter nor chapter 353 prohibits the Hawaii paroling authority from setting a prisoner's minimum term at a period equal to his or her maximum sentence.  97 H. 183, 35 P.3d 210 (2001).

  Chapter not violated and pre-sentence report sufficiently complied with §706-602, where defendant asserted that court did not order or receive a pre-sentence correctional diagnosis and report as required by §706-601(1)(a), therefore, since the information required under §706-602 was not furnished to court for its consideration in imposing sentence, the sentences were not imposed in accordance with provisions of this chapter and were illegal.  10 H. App. 535, 880 P.2d 208 (1992).

  Criminal contempt of court under §710-1077 is not available as a sanction for a violation of a condition of probation as there is no provision in this chapter that authorizes the use of criminal contempt as a sanction for violation of a condition of probation; the exclusive sanctions for a violation of a condition of probation in this chapter are set forth in §706-625.  120 H. 312 (App.), 205 P.3d 577 (2009).
