Prosecutors want one corruption trial against Kealohas
HONOLULU - U-S prosecutors want one corruption trial against former Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha, his deputy prosecutor wife Katherine, three current officers, and one former police major.
Derek Hahn, Bobby Nguyen, Daniel Sellers, and Gordon Shiraishi, asked a judge to be tried separately from the couple.
But prosecutors say four trials would bog down the court schedule, require multiple juries, and force witnesses to testify repeatedly about the same facts.
The Kealohas want one trial for accusations they framed a relative for a mailbox theft and another trial for bank fraud.
