Lobbyist Indicted
(2008-09-08)
(WOUB) - A one-time congressional aide who went on to work with jailed lobbyist Jack Abramoff has been indicted on public
corruption charges.

A 10-count federal indictment unsealed Monday charges Kevin Ring, 37, with conspiring with Abramoff to corrupt congressional and executive-branch officials by giving them things of value as a reward for helping Ring and his clients.

Among those mentioned in court papers Monday was former U.S. Rep. Bob Ney of Ohio.

Prior to becoming a lobbyist with Abramoff, Ring worked for Rep. John Doolittle, R-Calif., who remains under investigation in the Abramoff probe.

Abramoff was sentenced last week to four years in prison.
