Vic Kohring sent to California prison
Kohring got 3 1/2 years for bribery
Convicted Republican Vic Kohring will serve his 42-month federal prison sentence in California instead of Oregon as was recommended
at sentencing earlier this month.
Former Alaska legislator Kohring was convicted in November of
bribery, conspiracy and attempted extortion.
Mat-su Valley Frontiersman: "Life is not good for me right now," Kohring said while at the Palmer courthouse Thursday. Kohring would only say he was at the courthouse to help a friend.
The change in prisons will see Kohring serving time at a minimum-security federal prison in Taft, Calif., about 120 miles north of Los Angeles. He contends the change was made by federal Judge John Sedwick to further hurt him.
