HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The four men who escaped from the Waiawa Community Correctional Facility last month appeared in Circuit Court Thursday morning via video camera from the Oahu Community Correctional Facility.

Elijah Keakahumoku, Jordan White, David Carvalho, Jr. and Thomas George pled not guilty to charges of second degree escape.

The four men were discovered missing on June 26 when guards did a routine head count. They were recaptured June 27, capping a two-day island-wide manhunt.

Their trial is scheduled for the week of Sept. 6.

If convicted, the men could get up to five years added to their sentence.
