Prosecutors Outline Kott, Kohring Plea Agreements

Prosecutors say a plea agreement calls for former state lawmaker Vic Kohring to be sentenced to time served in a federal corruption case.

Prosecutors also say the deal calls for supervised release, to be determined by a judge. They are recommending three years.

Kohring is scheduled to plead guilty Friday in Anchorage. Sentencing is to follow.

Sentencing memoranda, also filed with the court Wednesday, show a plea agreement between another former lawmaker, Pete Kott, and prosecutors calls for a sentence of time served, followed by three years’ of supervised release, with Kott having a curfew for the first year. Kott also would be fined $10,000.

Kohring and Kott were among those caught in a wide-ranging probe of political corruption in Alaska. Their earlier convictions were tossed by an appeals court.
