Default Hawaii prison records (are they ever destroyed?)

Aloha, from Seattle!

I'm a public defender investigator in Seattle. I'm posting here in the hope that someone can help me help my client.

Got a client who did time in Hawaii in the early 80's. We need his Hawaii prison records for his defense now. Called the corrections division of public safety, and they told me his records were destroyed, because they were so old. All that's left is a record of the charge, the conviction, the sentence, and his induction and release date. What we need are his old records, showing work assignments, infraction reports, and that sort of thing.

Anybody here have any knowledge of whether old prison records really are destroyed? If yes, any kind of information about the policy? If no, any idea what a better way to get prison records might be?

Thank you all for any help and/or wisdom you can spare. Right now, I'm at a dead end. Take care, and God bless.

Hopefully I typed those in correctly. If they don't work, please PM me and I will double check them.
