Prosecutor: No Foul By VA AG For Late Reports

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli won't face charges for failing to promptly report thousands of dollars in personal gifts he had received years earlier on his required state economic interest statements.
    
Richmond Commonwealth's Attorney Mike Herring said Thursday there is no evidence that Cuccinelli committed a crime. Cuccinelli is the Republican candidate for governor.
    
Cuccinelli omitted more than $13,000 worth of gifts including private jet flights and free vacation lodgings from his required state disclosure forms for a period of four years. He amended his filings from 2009 through 2012 in late April, saying he simply overlooked the gifts earlier.
    
Cuccinelli asked Herring at the time to examine whether he should be charged with a crime. Deliberately withholding gifts and other financial information on required economic disclosure filings is a misdemeanor.
