Kevin A. Ring, the former "Team Abramoff" lobbyist who decided to fight the government in its influence-peddling investigation and was convicted Monday on five felony counts, is facing a lengthy prison sentence when he appears before U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle on March 1.
A jury Monday convicted the final figure to face trial in the Abramoff lobbying scandal of most of the charges he faced, possibly ending one of the final chapters in a corruption case that "garnered attention from the Beltway and beyond."
A jury in the second trial of a key figure in the Abramoff lobbying scandal couldn't reach a verdict Wednesday and indicated it was struggling to do so.
