HPD Officer Pleads Not Guilty

(KHNL) - A Honolulu police officer accused of protecting an illegal gambling operation made his first appearance before a federal judge Wednesday morning.

Glenn Miram arrived at the U.S. District Courthouse with his attorney. The defendant is a seven-year H.P.D. veteran, who was assigned to the department's gambling detail.

He is one of five Honolulu police officers indicted last week following a federal probe into illegal gambling in Waialua. Prosecutors say Miram and two other officers provided the gambling ring a heads-up on police raids.

Miram pleaded not guilty Wednesday morning. His trial is scheduled to begin June 6th.
