With tougher illegal drug penalties in the laws, the court is sentencing violators to the full extent of the law. 

In the recent case of the ROP vs. Yuske Smart Adachi, the court sentenced him to 10 years imprisonment without parole, a $10,000 fine, and ineligibility for a work release program for the second conviction of Possession of Less Than One Gram of Methamphetamine.  The sentencing also requires the defendant to take mandatory drug counseling while imprisoned.

In the sentencing order, it says that although the defendant has children with special needs with his girlfriend and that the girlfriend is 5 months pregnant, the pre-sentence investigation shows the defendant did not have strong family and relatives support to give the court confidence that he will not go back to the drug world.

Furthermore, this being the second conviction and on two counts of drug possession, the court in line with the law, the court sentenced the defendant to the full extent.

“This case is a clear example of how the effects of involvement in the drug world affect not only just the individual but entire families.  Defendant’s children, who have no control over their care, have had to face significant changes since this case was filed and now will have to live with the effects of defendant’s actions,” stated the court in the sentencing order.
