Vic Kohring’s Accident Becomes his Death Cause

Former member of the Alaska House of Representatives Vic Kohring’s accident news was confirmed by reliable sources on September 6, 2022.

In 2007, Kohring was convicted of charges including bribery and sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison. Recordings of conversations between Vic and executives at Veco showed he solicited fixes from the oilfield services company and took action to help the company while serving in the state Legislature, according to The Department of Justice.

“Kohring repeatedly agreed to lobby his colleagues and, if needed, cast votes in VECO’s favor on a key petroleum production tax proposal pending before the Alaska legislature.”

“In exchange, Kohring received multiple cash payments and solicited a $17,000 payment,” the Justice Department said in a 2008 statement.

An appeals court vacated the conviction and ordered a new trial. In 2011, Victor H. “Vic” pleaded guilty as part of a plea agreement to a charge of conspiracy to commit bribery.

Vic was sentenced to time previously served. He claimed he was the “target of unscrupulous prosecutors.”

In 2014 he was the Alaskan Independence Party candidate for the U.S. Senate from Alaska. Kohring withdrew from the race in September of that year and endorsed Republican challenger Dan Sullivan.

“Rest in Peace to big Vic Kohring. Vic indeed had his idiosyncrasies but he was the kindest gentleman to me on every #akleg occasion. I remember lobbying him in that ice-cold office that constantly smelled of lysol. We are all human, nobody is perfect. Don’t hate,” a Twitter user wrote.
