Honolulu police officer Michael Steven Chu blames his girlfriend for getting him involved in growing and selling marijuana.

“She was the one and I was helping her,” he said Thursday in U.S. District Court.

Chu pleaded guilty to conspiring to cultivate 48 marijuana plants and to possess with intent to distribute 49 pounds of processed marijuana.

His girlfriend, Athena Sui Lee, pleaded guilty Tuesday.

They each face maximum five-year prison terms when they are sentenced later this year.
