Hawaii island prison warden, superintendent charged with theft

News

A state prison warden and a superintendent have been charged with theft and are on leave from their positions at Kulani Correctional Facility on Hawaii island.

The state Attorney General’s office filed fourth-degree theft charges against warden Wanda Craig, alleging she stole a “nene crossing” sign in early 2017.

Kulani superintendent Jerry Crivello is charged with third-degree theft, accused of stealing gates.

The Department of Public Safety says they are both on leave pending administration investigations and the outcome of the petty misdemeanor and misdemeanor charges.

Both are set to appear in court in Hilo on Aug. 28.
