Federal prosecutors say testimony from Arne Fuglvog helped convict an Oregon man, Freddie Joe Hankins, of falsely reporting where he made commercial halibut catches.
Here's a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office in Anchorage.
Fuglvog is a former congressional aide and North Pacific Fishery Management Council member who was convicted of misreporting sablefish catches.
Sentenced to five months in prison, Fuglvog is scheduled for release on Aug. 11.
