Former Kauai police officer indicted on cyber-stalking charges

A former Kauai police officer was indicted this week for alleged cyber-stalking a female coworker.

A grand jury indicted Damian Loo, 49, of Lihue on charges of harassment by stalking and use of a computer in the commission of a separate crime, according to Attorney General Doug Chin.

Earlier this year over a period of about three weeks, Loo allegedly used the computer surveillance system while on the job at the Kauai police department “to watch a civilian female co-worker as she came and went to work.”

According to the AG’s office, harassment by stalking is a misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $2,000.00 fine. Use of a computer in the commission of separate crime is a class C felony and carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $10,000.00 fine.

Loo posted $1,000 bail.
