Wednesday morning at 11:00 a.m. ex-Rep. Vic Kohring will be standing in front of Federal Judge John Sedwick, asking for more time before he has to report to prison.
According to Vic's and my longtime friend, Fred James, Kohring will present documents from physicians stating that he has been unable to schedule important surgery in the time granted between his sentencing and the present. Fred says that the physicians will report that after the surgery Kohring will need at least six weeks of physical therapy as part of the recovery process, before reporting.
According to Fred, Vic's public defender has advised him not to expect an extension for the surgery. I told Fred that unless the Federal attorneys can present evidence that Kohring does not need the surgery, or that it can be preformed while Kohring is incarcerated, Sedwick may have to grant the extension.
Steve at What Do I Know? has already written about the hearing, and I believe he will be covering it tomorrow, along with the Alaska Report and the Anchorage Daily News.
I hope to be a little downriver from Chitina.....
