ATG NEWS RELEASE: Former Kauai police officer indicted for cyberstalking offenses

Posted on Sep 15, 2017 in Latest News

HONOLULU – Attorney General Doug Chin announced that a Kauai grand jury this week indicted Lihue resident Damian Loo for harassment by stalking and use of a computer in the commission of a separate crime.

While employed at the Kauai police department, Loo allegedly used the computer surveillance system to watch a civilian female co-worker as she came and went to work for approximately three weeks earlier this year.

Attorney General Chin stated: “Harassment by stalking victimizes individuals and hurts them. Don’t do it.”

Harassment by stalking is a misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $2,000.00 fine. Use of a computer in the commission of separate crime is a class C felony and carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $10,000.00 fine.

Loo is 49 years old and has no prior convictions. He posted bail in the amount of $1,000.00. He is presumed innocent unless and until he is found guilty of the charges beyond a reasonable doubt. A copy of the indictment is attached.
