Former Idaho Gubernatorial Candidate Rex Rammell Pleads Guilty in Plea Bargain

Former Republican gubernatorial candidate Rex Rammell has wrapped up his jury tampering case by agreeing to plead guilty to a misdemeanor and serve nine months of probation.  In a deal reached with the Bonneville County Prosecutor, Rammell pleaded guilty Wednesday in Idaho Falls to criminal contempt, a misdemeanor. In return, prosecutors dropped a felony filed after Rammell was arrested for passing out fliers to potential jurors in his poaching case. Rammell believes his actions were innocent and that efforts to inform jurors are within his rights. But he says that’s a battle better fought another day. The plea agreement not only ended Rammell’s latest legal tiff, but also ensured he can pursue political office without having to wait to clear a felony from his record. Last month, a jury convicted Rammell of unlawful possession of wildlife for killing an elk last November without a proper hunting tag. Rammell is appealing that conviction on grounds he didn’t get a fair trial.
