Bill Weimer sentenced to 6 months in prison

Another figure in Alaska’s ongoing political corruption scandal is headed to prison. Former Alaska businessman Bill Weimar was sentenced to six months in prison, six months home confinement and fined $75,000 in Anchorage federal court this morning. Weimar used to run profitable halfway houses for Alaska and is now retired and living in Montana. He pleaded guilty in August for his role in a scheme to funnel $20,000 to a state Senate candidate.
