HONOLULU (AP) - A former member of the Kauai Police Commission has been sentenced to six months in prison and six months home confinement for running a sports gambling business and filing a false tax return.

Bradley Chiba was sentenced in federal court on Friday.

Chiba pleaded guilty in June. He says he collected bets and paid winnings out of his Kauai home. He says he received wagers via text message and then placed bets on Internet gambling sites.

He resigned from the Kauai Police Commission in February in the midst of the federal investigation.

Chiba forfeits $29,000 in gambling proceeds.

He was sentenced to six months in prison for the gambling count and the false tax return count. He will serve the two sentences concurrently.
