There is disbelief in American Samoa over a plea deal reached in a case involving a veteran police officer who'd been charged with vehicular homicide.
Lieutenant Lanu Mapu killed a man crossing the street last March, but this week he pleaded no contest to reckless driving causing bodily injury.
Our correspondent, Monica Miller, says such a plea deal hasn't been made before, and people are surprised.
"Because they know that it was very serious crime. A person was killed in this accident and compared to other similar cases there have been no such plea agreements like this."
She says Mapu faces one year in prison and a fine of 1000 dollars instead of up to five years jail.
