Prosecutors are urging Topeka District Judge Julie Robinson to re-sentence former Westar Energy President and CEO David Wittig on his bank fraud charges. They're asking for a five-year sentence in the case, which centers on Wittig's involvement with former bank president Del Weidner. Wittig signed for a line of credit to participate in an Arizona land deal with Weidner. The case is not connected to Wittig's appeals, resulting in lesser sentences in the looting of Westar Energy.
An appeals court ruled the maximum on the bak fraud charges was six months. Wittig's attorneys say with his time already served, he should be released now.
