The Honolulu Ethics Commission says it has not dismissed its investigations into retired Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha and his wife, Katherine, a former city prosecutor. But the commission's former executive director called the commission's actions surrounding ethics complaints against the couple "careless." 

At an Ethics Commission meeting Wednesday, Chair Victoria Marks said there’s a lot of misinformation surrounding the board’s handling of the Kealohas cases.

The future of Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha could be determined this Friday. That’s when the Honolulu Police Commission will reconvene to make a decision on the Chief’s employment status.
