On June 27, the Naha District Court (presiding judge: Kato Takashi) sentenced a 32-year-old U.S. servicemember affiliated with Torri Station to eight months in prison for violating the Road Traffic Act but suspended the sentence for three years (the prosecution had demanded eight months’ imprisonment). The defendant was arrested in June last year for driving under the influence of alcohol and causing a hit-and-run accident in Kadena Town. This was the first hearing of the trial, and the defendant admitted the charges. [The defendant’s name has been redacted.]
