Former Honolulu deputy prosecutor and lawmaker Jon Riki Karamatsu has been found guilty of driving under the influence.

Karamatsu was arrested back in April 2015 and reassigned from his job at the city prosecutor’s office a few days after his arrest.

On Wednesday, he was sentenced to five days in jail and $1,000 fine, but that sentence was postponed pending an appeal.

This is the second time Karamatsu has been caught driving drunk.

In October 2007, Karamatsu was driving on Moanalua Freeway when he slammed into a concrete median.

He was serving as a state representative for the 41st District at the time.
