Former deputy is running for city prosecutor

  • COURTESY MEGAN KAU

    Former Deputy Prosecutor Megan Kau is running for Honolulu city prosecutor in 2020.

Former Deputy Prosecutor Megan Kau announced today her intention to run for Honolulu city prosecutor in 2020.

The candidate filing period starts in February.

Kau, 42, was a deputy prosecutor from 2006 to 2010.

In July she filed a petition on behalf of her former boss Peter Carlisle asking the court to declare Carlisle eligible to run for his old job. Carlisle said he is withdrawing the petition and is throwing his support behind Kau.

Current Honolulu City Prosecutor Keith Kaneshiro has been on paid leave since March, after the FBI notified him that he is the target of a criminal investigation.
