ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- U.S. Rep. Don Young sent out a statement Wednesday saying that his legal team has been notified that after full cooperation from Young, the Public Integrity Section of the Department of Justice has concluded their investigation and declined prosecution of the Congressman.
Young had been under investigation since 2007 for his ties to VECO Corp. The company's former CEO, Bill Allen, was sentenced to 36 months in prison and a $750,000 fine last year for his dealings with Alaska state lawmakers.
