Weimar moves from prison to halfway house in Montana

Posted: Friday, May 29, 2009

ANCHORAGE - A man convicted of illegally funneling money to help a state legislative candidate is out of federal prison and into a halfway house.

Bill Weimar two weeks ago entered a residential re-entry center in Butte, Mont.

Weimar is the former owner of Allvest, a chain of halfway houses.

He pleaded guilty in August to two corruption charges stemming from efforts to get the state to agree to house inmates in a private prison in Alaska.

Weimar admitted funneling $20,000 to a campaign consultant in 2004 to help a state legislative candidate, knowing the candidate would support a private prison.

Weimar began serving a six-month sentence Jan. 5 in Arizona. After his expected release in July, he'll have another six months of home confinement.
