A Korean shipping company pled guilty today to three felonies involving environmental crimes violations.
"Keoje Marine" was sentenced by a federal judge in Honolulu to pay a $1.1 million dollar fine .. $250,000 of which will be used to improve Hawaii's coral reefs.
The company admitted to dumping oily bilge waste into the waters off Hawaii, and tried to cover it up by falsifying the ship's record book.
