Maui Second Circuit Judge Rhonda Loo has ordered 30-year-old Daren Young to write 144 nice things about his ex-girlfriend after he violated her protection order.
The woman sought a protection order after the two separated, which was issued Feb. 22, but two months later, Young called and texted her 144 times within a three-hour period, police said.
Young was accused of saying “nasty things” in calls and text messages to the woman. Now, he has to write one “nice thing” for every “nasty thing.”
On top of that, Young was also sentenced to two years’ probation, 200 hours of community service, and a $ 2,400 fine. Prior to sentencing, Young had served 157 days in jail.
Social media had mixed feelings about the decision.
