Man sentenced in break-in at home of 'South Park' co-creator | News
LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - A 45-year-old man convicted of breaking into the Hawaii home of "South Park" co-creator Trey Parker on Kauai has been sentenced to a year in jail and five years' probation.
Former Kauai police officer Joseph Genaro Bonachita of Hanapepe (ha-NAH'-peh-PEH') pleaded no contest in May to amended charges of misdemeanor criminal trespass and terroristic threatening plus illegally keeping a weapon in his vehicle.
He was sentenced Wednesday in 5th Circuit Court to concurrent six-month sentences on the misdemeanor counts and probation for the weapons count.
The Garden Island reports Bonachita in July 2009 entered the home and showed up at Parker's bedroom with a knife.
Bonachita's ex-girlfriend, a friend of Parker's, was with Parker at the home. She yelled at the intruder until he left.
