Hearing for former US Rep. Rick Renzi set for June

TUCSON, Ariz. — A federal appeals court panel has scheduled a June 17
hearing in Seattle to consider former Arizona Congressman Rick Renzi’s appeals
of his convictions on public-corruption and money-laundering charges.

A federal jury in Tucson convicted Renzi in June 2013 and a judge in December
sentenced him to three years in prison. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is
allowing Renzi to remain free pending the outcome of his appeal

Renzi, a Republican, represented Arizona’s 1st Congressional District from 2003
to 2009.

He didn’t run for re-election in 2008 while facing federal charges accusing him
of looting a family insurance business to help pay for his 2002 campaign and of
using his office for personal gain by pushing a proposed land exchange involving
a co-defendant.
