U.S. District Court Judge J. Michael Seabright set March 17 as the sentencing date for Katherine Kealoha, a former deputy city prosecutor, and her husband, former Honolulu Police chief Louis Kealoha, who last week signed separate plea agreements with federal prosecutors.
The Kealohas will be sentenced separately.
Katherine Kealoha pleaded guilty to three felonies in two federal criminal cases involving bank fraud, aggravated identity theft and “misprision” of a felony — knowing someone committed a crime and failing to report it — for aiding and not reporting her brother’s alleged drug trafficking.
Aggravated identity theft has a mandatory two-year minimum sentence. Sentencing guidelines for the other felonies vary, and a series of hearings will take place to determine which ones apply.
Louis Kealoha formally pleaded guilty to one felony count of bank fraud and will remain out of custody on bail until his sentencing.
