HONOLULU (AP) - The chairman of the state Land Board says the people who damaged the front door of the Iolani Palace in Honolulu should be fined.
William Aila tells the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that a strong message needs to be sent that the palace must be respected.
Surveillance cameras Saturday showed a woman kicking and smashing glass panes of a palace door.
The woman and a man were arrested but not charged.
They appeared Monday in Honolulu District Court and pleaded guilty to unrelated misdemeanors connected to citations for violating park closure rules and illegal placement of tents in parks.
They were credited for time served and set free.
Honolulu Police spokeswoman Michelle Yu says the city continues to investigate the palace property damage case.
