Arnold Flowers and girlfriend Sompong Khamsomphou are convicted by a jury in Anchorage of criminal tampering with a witness. They are acquitted of the more serious charges of plotting a murder-for-hire, which Scott Kimball had accused them of orchestrating 15 months earlier.
Kimball testifies at the trial.
A month later, Flowers is sentenced to eight years in prison and Khamsomphou gets five years behind bars.
