    I was at u turn with him in California. Seemed like an ok guy. There are easier places to get sober. I have mixed feelings about the program. I learned a lot about the bible and myself but making people dig holes at midnight for smoking or swearing was a bit much.

    Former “James at 15” TV star sentenced on Kauai
    By Associated Press

    POSTED: 11:35 a.m. HST, Jul 27, 2010

    LIHUE >> Former child TV star Lance Kerwin has been placed on five years probation, given credit for 90 days served and ordered to perform 300 hours of community service.

    Kerwin, who played the title role in “James at 15” on NBC in the 1977-78 season, was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to second-degree theft.

    Kauai County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Lauren McDowell says Kerwin, 49, was caught falsifying documents to obtain state medical assistance and food stamps.

    Defense attorney Craig De Costa says when Kerwin applied for the benefits, he omitted in the application that he owned three properties in the mainland.

    Kerwin says he has already paid $21,822 in restitution.

  10. missy says:

    Kerwin and wife plead guilty to second degree theft as he works as pastor at U-turn for Christ of Calgary Church, Kauai. (Incidentally, Kerwin’s wife was 16 years old when the two Christians were married; she is 21 years younger than he is).

  11. DMZvet says:

    Lance has started a U turn for Christ Ranch on the island of Kauai.
