Raid of attorney’s home connected to massive public corruption case

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Federal agents and Honolulu police raided the home of an attorney on Friday morning as part of an ongoing public corruption case.

Deputy U.S. Marshals, Homeland Security agents and Honolulu Police participated in the raid of attorney Christopher Woo's home.

Woo had a warrant for skipping his appearance before the federal grand jury investigating city Prosecutor Keith Kaneshiro, former Honolulu Police Department Chief Louis Kealoha and his deputy prosecutor wife, Katherine.

The Kealohas and a number of police officers have already been indicted, accused in a massive public corruption case.

But grand jury proceedings continue.

HNN cameras were there on the day Woo was supposed to appear before the grand jury.

He showed up very late and was disheveled as he tried to go through court security while on the phone explaining his tardiness.

Woo was in custody after the raid, and then was released after appearing in court.
