HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A jury has found an Oahu man not guilty of shooting and paralyzing a teenager.

Joshua Gonda was facing life in prison, accused of shooting Roger Curioso in a car back in July of 2008 on the Moanalua Freeway.

Gonda maintained he wasn't the shooter that night and the defense said the prosecution's case was filled with holes - and its witnesses kept changing their stories.

Thursday a jury agreed and found Gonda not guilty on six charges related to the shooting. But the 21 year old isn't free yet, he's being transferred to federal authorities where he'll serve a one year term on an unrelated charge.
