Tom Anderson Likely to Get Off Probation Early


Federal probation authorities have made an unopposed request that ex-Alaska State Rep. Tom Anderson be released early from probation.    Richard Mauer of the Anchorage Daily News has the report on the request, which would shave about nine months of Anderson's sentence based on the former Anchorage Republican legislator's compliance with the terms of his supervised release, including a substance abuse program.

It is always seemed odd in some moral sense that Anderson--who is obviously not the most culpable figure in the federal probe into Alaska public corruption--has served the most severe sentence of any defendant in the cases arising from that investigation.
