IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Former U.S. Sen. Larry Craig is scheduled to speak Thursday at commencement ceremonies for graduates at a University of Idaho satellite campus in Idaho Falls in southeastern Idaho.

The Post Register reports that 73 degrees will be awarded from the University Place campus Thursday, and that nine will be doctoral degrees. Craig is scheduled to speak about his political career that ended in 2009 when he left office following a sex scandal.

The Idaho Republican and UI graduate was arrested by an undercover police officer conducting a sting operation against men cruising for sex at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Craig pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and paid a fine. After his arrest later became public, he tried unsuccessfully to reverse his conviction.
