Republican Victor Kohring Indicted - Again

October 5, 2007

Anchorage, Alaska - Former Alaska Representative Victor Kohring has been indicted again, this time the FBI added allegations that the bribery conspiracy with Bill Allen goes back to 2002 and that a $17,000 payment from Allen was a payment - not a loan.

Former Alaska Rep. Victor Kohring has been indicted again, this time the FBI added allegations that the bribery conspiracy with Bill Allen.

Prosecutors expanded the charging document by three pages and is also alleging that Kohring fired an aide at former Veco chairman Bill Allen's request.

Allen, CEO and part-owner of VECO, an oil services company in Alaska, pleaded guilty to three counts charging him with: bribery; conspiracy to commit bribery, extortion under color of official right, and honest services mail and wire fraud; and conspiracy to defraud the Internal Revenue Service of the U.S. Department of Treasury.

Kohring's new indictment doesn't add any counts to the case against him, but it says Kohring first began receiving illegal cash payments of $500 to $1,000 from Allen in 2002.

The indictment now calls $17,000 that Kohring allegedly sought from Allen to pay off a credit card debt a "payment" instead of a "loan", according to the Anchorage Daily News.

Kohring and two cohorts were indicted May 4th, 2007 on federal bribery, extortion, and conspiracy charges. Kohring resigned under pressure in July.
