HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu Police Officer Danny Sellers is fighting to keep his job.

Sellers pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in the Kealoha’s public corruption case.

He’s serving a year probation for sharing information with former deputy Prosecutor Katherine Kealoha about the reported theft of her mailbox ― a crime she blamed on her uncle.

Sellers made a plea deal with federal prosecutors before the trial began.

Hawaii News Now has learned that HPD notified Sellers that it plans to fire him, and Sellers has received papers about his termination.

But he’s challenging it, saying other officers who have done the same thing were only suspended.
