Former HPD Officer Sentenced To Federal Prison

(KHNL) -- A former Honolulu police officer, caught on the wrong side of the law, will spend two years and four months in a federal prison in Oregon.

James Corn received that sentence in Federal Court Wednesday. Prosecutors say the former officer was a cocaine addict who sold a pistol to an undercover officer in February of last year.

After the sentencing, police chief Boisse Correa said, "The Honolulu Police Department holds its officers to the highest level of integrity, and we are continuously working to prevent and properly address any wrongdoing by our officers. We hope that the acts of a single person will not detract from the good work done daily by the men and women of HPD"

Corn left the department in August. He must surrender to federal authorities next Wednesday.
