On Friday, 20 October 2017, shortly after noon, retired Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha and his wife, Katherine, pled not guilty to federal corruption charges and were released on a $100,000 unsecured bond.
Here’s the latest update on the widely expanding FBI investigation into the alleged corruption case from reporters Rosemary Bernardo and Gordon Y. K. Pang:
“A Honolulu Police Department spokeswoman said Sgt. Daniel Sellers, who was also arrested as part of the Kealoha investigation, will be placed on leave without pay pending the investigation. Sellers was released on $50,000 unsecured bond in federal court today after pleading not guilty. He is alleged to have given false testimony to the federal grand jury and the FBI about the Kealoha case. Sellers has 20 years of service with HPD and is currently assigned to the Windward Oahu district.”
