Alaska legislators snared in bribery probe ordered freed

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this morning sent the corruption cases of former Alaska Reps. Pete Kott and Vic Kohring back to federal District Court in Anchorage with orders that both men be released from prison pending further hearings. The Justice Department had sought their release, saying prosecutors had withheld exculpatory evidence from their defense.
