Teacher Who Confessed to Drug Dealing Prepares for Sentencing

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- A Hawaii public school teacher who admits he moonlighted as a drug dealer is scheduled to be sentenced in Federal Court Monday.

Lee Anzai pleaded guilty to a methamphetamine distribution charge in December. He admits he sold crystal meth to an undercover officer on five separate occasions.

The 29-year-old was a special education teacher at Leilehua High School. Federal agents arrested him in the parking lot of Long's Drug Store on Pali Highway in October.

The crime carries a punishment of 10 years to life in prison. But prosecutors are expected to seek less than that because of Anzai's cooperation with law enforcement authorities.
