Kapaa man imprisoned after forging father’s checks
Hawaii News Now
He was also ordered to pay full restitution to First Hawaiian Bank.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

What a wasted lilfe.  Kapaa, Kauai resident Jonathan Niehaus will spend five years in prison for forging his father’s checks.  In addition, he will be required to pay restitution to First Hawaiian Bank for fraud and theft.  Niehaus has an extensive criminal record, including drug use, terroristic threatening, and assault.  This guy is an amoral sociopath that should be locked away for the rest of his life.  Aloha, Russ.

  1. Sadly, this is what Kauai is becoming. Drugs are prevalent here and it seems to be the excuse of choice for almost all criminal activity.
    Sad to see children being raised by parents who choose drugs over a quality life. The days of parents teaching their kids right from wrong, respecting others, and manners seem to be a thing of the past. Which makes it difficult on kids who ARE being raised properly, because they can’t even feel safe in school.
    People can use the drug excuse, but when does this pattern end? It’s ruining lives and society as we once knew it…..

    • Thanks, Francine for your thoughtful reply. It seems our society has lost its social awareness and sense of individual responsibility. I was raised to respect my parents and to assume responsibility for my actions. Apparently, these old values are being replaced by the “me first” mentality of instant gratification. The drug problem can be cured, but few in power are doing anything to stop it…there’s too much money and power at stake. Sadly, justice is a purchasable commodity. If you have the cash (from whatever the source), you can do most anything. Check out the Plueger/Koloko Dam case on Kauai for a typical example. No amount of money will ever bring back the seven lives that were lost to someone’s negligence. The guilty parties will get some kind of probation and a hefty fine, while the rest of us will continue to muddle through as best we can. It’s difficult to be a law-abiding citizen when those around us flaunt the law, cheat their families, and abuse themselves and their children. Some of these characters should just be removed from society and placed in a place where they can’t harm anyone, including themselves. Aloha, Russ.
