We’re learning more about the state’s case involving Hawaii Island mayor Billy Kenoi and the use of his county purchasing card.
The state says it presented grand jurors with receipts for 13 out of 15 credit card transactions, with the majority of them showing purchases for alcohol.
Evidence was also presented to show that the purchases were not reimbursed until media requests were made seeking receipts for the credit card.
Kenoi’s attorney is asking that the case be dismissed based on what they call a violation of the mayor’s right to a fair and impartial grand jury.
A judge will hear that motion on Friday.
