HONOLULU (AP) - A U.S. judge on Monday rejected a former Maui police officer’s guilty plea in a case accusing him of soliciting sex from a woman he pulled over for operating a vehicle while intoxicated in exchange for giving false testimony at her trial.
Brandon Saffeels said he offered to testify untruthfully. But when U.S. District Judge Leslie Kobayashi asked if his offer in exchange for solicitation of sex - as federal prosecutors alleged - he said he wasn’t admitting to any sexual favors in exchange for lying at the woman’s trial.
He told the woman that he “would stumble on my words to make my testimony not credible,” he said.

A court document charging Saffeels with honest services wire fraud said he allegedly used his position as a police officer to access the woman’s cellphone number and solicit sex in exchange for sabotaging the case against her.
