HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A former Maui county official who admitted to taking bribes is scheduled to be sentenced this week.

Stewart Stant served as the environmental director and took thousands of dollars from contractor Milton Choy, who has also pleaded guilty.

According to Honolulu Civil Beat, Stant spent $187,000 on dining, $54,000 on hotels, $60,000 on hostess bars and more on airfare and jewelry.

Stant reportedly cooperated in the investigation so prosecutors have asked for a lighter sentence of 9 to 11 years.
