A Kailua man was sentenced Monday to 46 months in prison for a drug offense committed near a school.

Chief United States District Judge J. Michael Seabright sentenced Aaron Hu, 52, to imprisonment for possessing, with intent to distribute, a quantity of methamphetamine and heroin within a thousand feet of a public elementary school on March 30, 2015.

Hu was convicted on February 25, 2016 following a three-day jury trial.

According to information produced for the court, Hu agreed to sell approximately one ounce of heroin and a quantity of methamphetamine within a thousand feet of Kailua Elementary School to an individual who was cooperating with law enforcement.

Hu was also sentenced to serve a 12-year term of supervised release following the completion of his prison term as a result of having previously been convicted by the State of Hawaii for promotion of a dangerous drug in the second degree in 2006.
