A petition to impeach Honolulu Prosecutor Keith Kaneshiro was filed at First Circuit Court Tuesday.

Our partners at Civil Beat report that Tracy Yoshimura and his attorney Keith Kiuchi  filed the petition that carried 864 names, over 300 more than is required by the City Charter.

This news following recent unconfirmed reports stating that federal prosecutors notified Kaneshiro that he is the target of an expanding investigation into Honolulu law enforcement.

The petition was assigned to Judge Jeffrey Crabtree, but a hearing date is yet to be scheduled.
