Former Honolulu city councilman Rod Tam is behind bars.
KHON reported that Tam turned himself in at District Court Friday morning to begin serving his two-day prison sentence. He will be released New Year’s Day.
Tam admitted to the theft of city funds for overcharging taxpayers for meals and also campaign spending violations.
He also had to perform more than 300 hours of community service as part of his sentence.
Tam’s criminal record will be wiped clean if he remains out of trouble for a year.
