HONOLULU – A federal grand jury has indicted former Honolulu prosecutor, and her brother on drug distribution charges.
The indictment unsealed Tuesday, also claims to be Katherine Kealoha, wife of now retired Honolulu police chief Louis Kealoha, steering law enforcement away from the critical of her brother, Dr. Rudolph Puana, after the police told her that he was buying cocaine. Puana is an anesthesiologist.
Messages left Tuesday for the attorneys of both brothers and sisters were not immediately returned.
The indictment against the brothers and sisters and unnamed co-conspirators with the distribution of oxycodone, fentanyl and Xanax.
It says Puana advised a co-conspirator’s use of the proceeds from the sale of illegally prescribing pain medication to buy cocaine for the two of them.
Kealoha and her husband are scheduled to go to trial in March on unrelated charges.
