A former Kauai police officer has been indicted for cyberstalking.
Damian Loo, 49, of Lihue was indicted by a Kauai grand jury this week on charges of harassment by stalking and use of a computer in the commission of a separate crime.
According to the Hawaii attorney general’s office, Loo was working at the Kauai Police Department when he allegedly used the computer surveillance system to watch a civilian female coworker as she came and went to work for approximately three weeks earlier this year.
County officials say Loo was initially hired by the Honolulu Police Department on July 17, 1997, and was transferred to the Kauai Police Department on Aug. 1, 1999. He was fired on June 25, 2017 as result of KPD’s investigation of this case.
Loo is free after posting $1,000 bail. He has no prior convictions.
Harassment by stalking is a misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $2,000 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 fine.
