Folks did go to prison:


"Telecommunications executive Albert Hee was sentenced to 46 months in 
federal prison on Wednesday for tax charges."

"Hee is the younger brother of former state Sen. Clayton Hee and the 
founder of Sandwich Isles Communications."


"Hee, brother of former state Sen. Clayton Hee 
<https://www.bizjournals.com/pacific/search/results?q=Clayton Hee>, was 
convicted of federal tax fraud 
in 2015 and was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison and was 
released on Sept. 19, 2019, according to the Bureau of Prisons website."

good details here: 

He cheated folks that don't have much in the first place, so he could 
have millions he didn't deserve.  Ugly person.

We (Hawaiian Telcom) bought the Paniolo Cable Company for their 
interisland fiber network and have been pushing out good internet to the 
far-flung locations.  We have really, really remote locations here.


(paniolo means cowboy in Hawaiian)
