Keith Kaneshiro was sworn in today as Honolulu city prosecutor some 14 years after leaving the office.
Hawaii Supreme Court Associate Justice Paula Nakayama, a friend and former fellow deputy prosecutor, performed the ceremony today at the Department of Prosecuting Attorney’s office at Alii Place.
Nakayama also swore in most of the 93 deputy attorneys Kaneshiro re-appointed (some of whom were on vacation), and six new deputies he brought in.
Kaneshiro named as first deputy prosecuting attorney Armina Ching, a deputy prosecutor since 1984. She has been serving as a deputy and performing screening intake for new cases.
