Katherine Kealoha has resigned as deputy prosecutor with the City and County of Honolulu, the city announced this afternoon.
She and her husband, former Honolulu police chief Louis Kealoha, are scheduled to stand trial in U.S. District Court in November on bank fraud charges.
The Kealohas were charged in a corruption and abuse of power case that accuses them of ripping off financial institutions, family members and others to fund a high-flying lifestyle.
They are also scheduled to stand trial in March with four former members of the Honolulu Police Department’s Criminal Intelligence Unit on charges that they framed a Kealoha relative with stealing the Kealoha’s mailbox. The trial will also involve charges accusing Katherine Kealoha of stealing money from her grandmother and uncle.
Katherine Kealoha previously had been placed on leave without pay, according to the Honolulu Prosecutor’s Office.
Kealoha was formally placed on unpaid leave in October and had been on voluntary unpaid leave before that.
