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 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.
