Nanakuli man pleads guilty to illegal dumping

Our KHON2 “Action Line” is being credited with helping to bring a Nanakuli resident to justice for illegal water pollution.

Last June, we showed you video of Turhan Lapinig throwing garbage into the Ulehawa stream.

He was charged with illegal water pollution and Tuesday in court Lapinig changed his plea to guilty taking responsibility for the illegal dumping.

When sentenced in October, he will have to serve 500 hours of community service.
