2 Retire, 2 Suspended for Sentencing Debacle

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman says two state attorneys have retired under threat of being fired and two other were suspended for their actions in the state's prison sentencing debacle.  Heineman announced Friday that Department of Correctional Services general counsel George Green and associate legal counsel Sharon Lindgren chose to leave their jobs rather than be fired.  In addition, department records administrator Kyle Poppert was suspended without pay for two weeks. Associate legal counsel Kathy Blum was suspended without pay for one day.  The announcement came during an investigation into hundreds of prison inmates whose sentences were miscalculated, resulting in their early release.
