A former Honolulu police major faces sentencing for lying to FBI agents and filing a false tax return.

Carlton Nishimura is scheduled for sentencing today.

He pleaded guilty in June in a plea deal with prosecutors, who agreed to dismiss other charges including extortion and drug possession.

Nishimura says he lied to agents when he told them he didn't tell a woman about an investigation into the United Samoan Organization, which her husband belonged to. He also says he didn't report about $9,000 on his 2005 income tax return.

He had been accused of receiving money to protect an illegal gambling room. Court documents had alleged crystal meth was found during a raid of his Waianae home.

He faces a maximum of eight years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
