HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Charles Goodwin, retired FBI Special Agent in Charge in Hawaii, has been nominated to run the local U.S. Marshals Service.
Goodwin was forced to retire from the Federal Bureau of Investigations in 2007 after 'aging out' at 57 years old. He is currently a security consultant for the PGA Tour.
Goodwin's nomination still requires U.S. Senate confirmation.
The position was vacated last year when Gervin Miyamoto was forced to retire amid an investigation by the Department of Justice for special treatment allegations.
That investigation was launched in 2016 after Miyamoto was shown on Hawaii News Now video, driving the Honolulu city prosecutor and a deputy police chief into the secure parking garage of the federal building to avoid the media. Both were summoned to testify before the grand jury that has since indicted former police chief Louis Kealoha and his deputy prosecutor wife, Katherine.
