Democrat megadonor Milton Choy of Hawaii was sentenced to three years in prison for being involved in a multi-million dollar bribery scheme that involved both state and county officials.
Honolulu District Court Judge Derrick Watson sentenced Choy, the founder of H2O Process Systems, to a 41-month sentence along with three years of supervised release.
Choy was found guilty in September after an investigation revealed he spent “more than $2 million over the course of six years bribing Stewart Stant, the former director of Maui’s Department of Environmental Management, in exchange for more than $19 million in no-bid contracts.”
Besides bribing Stant, Choy also bribed former Hawaii state lawmakers J. Kalani English and Ty Cullen who have been found guilty and sentenced to Federal prison for Honest Services Wire Fraud.
