Wife of former prison guard to be sentenced for bankruptcy fraud

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

The wife of a former Oahu prison guard is expected to be sentenced for bankruptcy fraud.

Michelle Malufau is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court Thursday.

A jury found her guilty in November of making false statements on documents and lying under oath in a 2011 bankruptcy proceeding.

Prosecutors say the Laie woman concealed assets including a North Sore Oahu home, a bank account and rental income while clearing more than $1 million of debt by filing for bankruptcy.

She faces up to five years in prison on each charge.

Her husband is a former guard at Halawa Correctional Facility accused in a federal racketeering indictment of taking bribes.
