Convicted Republican Vic Kohring will serve his 42-month federal prison sentence in California instead of Oregon

Former Alaska legislator Kohring was convicted in November of bribery, conspiracy and attempted extortion.

From the 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.
