LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - A Kauai man has been sentenced to five years in prison for forging his father’s personal checks.

The Kauai prosecuting attorney’s office says Jonathan Niehaus was sentenced last week after admitting he used $7,000 to travel with his then-girlfriend and purchase prescription drugs.

The 28-year-old Kapaa man was arrested in June.

He’s ordered to pay full restitution to First Hawaiian Bank.

Prosecutors say he has convictions dating to 2008 for drug promotion, assault and terroristic threatening.

Prosecuting Attorney Justin Kollar says Niehaus repeatedly took advantage of family members and those who trusted him.
