Another Former Ney Aide Receives Probation

The second chief of staff for former Ohio Representative Bob Ney who entered a guility plea received two years probation, a $2,000 fine, and 100 hours of community service for his role in the favors passed by former superlobbyist Jack Abramoff to the Congressman.  Neil Volz was instrumental in the investigation of Ney, who is currently serving a 30-month sentence after his own guilty plea to corruption charges.  Ney's other chief of staff during the period received two years probation after his guilty plea, which also included substantial cooperation.  While federal prosecutors asked for a period of home confinement for Volz, the government acknowledged his significant cooperation in the Ney investigation.  A Columbus Dispatch story (here) discusses the sentencing.
