Kott lawyer seeks 3-year prison max; maintains innocence

A lawyer for convicted former-lawmaker Pete Kott is asking a judge to sentence his client to roughly three years in prison, about 1/3 of what the prosecution requested. Kott was convicted in September on charges of bribery, conspiracy and extortion, but in a sentencing memorandum filed today, Kott maintains his innocence. Sentencing is set for Friday (12/07/2007).
