Man pleads guilty in Allenby case

A resident of Hawaii pleaded guilty to using Robert Allenby’s credit cards after the Australian golfer said he was beaten and robbed in January several hours after he missed the cut in the Sony Open in Hawaii at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu.

Allenby said he had no memory of what happened for 2 1/2 hours after he left a Honolulu restaurant, where he was dining with friends until he woke up in a park with a bloodied face.

Owen Harbison was arrested in February on identity theft and other charges, and Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Jacob Delaplane said Harbison pleaded guilty on Tuesday.

Harbison is expected to receive a five-year sentence.

Delaplane says Harbison used Allenby’s credit cards and identification to make purchases that included gift cards, jewelry and clothing.

Allenby said he preferred to wait until after the sentencing to comment.
