Former Honolulu police officer Richard Raquino pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court this afternoon to lying to the FBI when agents asked him if he had revealed the identity of an undercover police officer.
Raquino, 41, pleaded guilty to three counts of making false statements to government agents. He faces up to five years in prison on each count when he is sentenced in January.
Federal prosecutor Mark Inciong said the government has an audio recording of a conversation between Raquino and another person in which Raquino discusses the name and identity of an undercover police officer.
