State AG will address prosecution of lieutenant governor

Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto will hold a press conference Thursday at 11 a.m. to address the flawed effort to prosecute Nevada Lieutenant Gov. Brian Krolicki.

On Monday Judge Valerie Adair tossed out a case against Krolicki, a Republican, in which Masto, a Democrat, alleged he managed funds for a college savings program in an illegal manner.

Krolicki, once considered a potential challenger to the office of Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., maintains he did nothing wrong and has said the prosecution was politically motivated.

The case, announced in November, 2008, as Krolicki was gearing up for a potential run against Reid, derailed the challenge. But the decision Monday by Adair put the political heat back on Masto, who is now in position to explain why the prosecution failed.

Masto could appeal the verdict or otherwise renew the prosecution against Krolicki with another indictment.
