Three-time convicted drunk driver Siaosi Feleunga will be off Hawaiçi’s roads for up to 10 years.

In a hearing before Circuit Judge Karen Ahn, Feleunga, 32, admitted crashing his truck into the motorcycle of Lindsey Kane on Farrington Highway in Waipahu on Dec. 29, 2008.
Kane died of injuries received in the collision.
Feleunga pleaded guilty to a felony charge of fleeing the scene without rendering aid to Kane and to charges of second-degree negligent homicide and driving while his license was suspended due to an earlier DUI conviction.
Feleunga, aka “One Eye George,” also admitted guilt to two unrelated misdemeanor charges of second-degree terroristic threatening and leaving the scene of an accident.
In a plea deal reached with prosecutors, Feleunga agreed to serve a maximum prison sentence of 10 years.
