Sentencing has been rescheduled again in Hawaii’s biggest corruption case after it was previously postponed by the coronavirus pandemic.

A U.S. judge today set a Nov. 30 sentencing date for retired Honolulu Police Chief Louis Kealoha and his now-estranged wife, Katherine Kealoha, who was a former high-ranking city prosecutor.

A jury convicted them last year of conspiracy in a plot to frame a relative to keep him from revealing fraud that financed their lavish lifestyle.

Sentencing hearings for the couple had been originally scheduled for March.

Last week, a judge approved a Nov. 3 sentencing date. Lawyers involved in the case say the date needed to be changed because that’s Election Day.

Two former officers convicted with the Kealohas are scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 1.
