Pete Kott and Vic Kohring Are Out of Prison


Pete Kott and Vic Kohring are free pursuant to a go-faster order to the U.S. Marshals from Judge John Sedwick. Details on their release--including bits on Kohring's tastes in food and hair--are available in the Anchorage Daily News at on the Internet.

There will be hearings on June 17 to determine the conditions of their release, and other hearings at some unspecified date to figure out what relief the two should get following the Department of Justice's admissions that they didn't get all the evidence they should have before their trials.

The release of these two former state legislators leaves ex-State Rep. Tom Anderson (R.-Anchorage) and former businessman/powerbroker Bill Weimar as the only two people in confinement as a result of the federal probe into Alaska public corruption. Anderson is in federal prison, and former halfway house magnate Weimar is in a halfway house.
