Ada County Prosecutor Greg Bower says he won't file charges against Renee McKenzie (former wife of state Sen. Curt McKenzie, R-Nampa) for practicing law without a license or smuggling contraband into a state prison. But in a letter to her lawyer, Bower called McKenzie's conduct "troubling." "We are confident you will counsel your client on the law to ensure she understands not only what constitutes the practice of law but what constitutes the unauthorized conveyance of prohibited items into a correctional facility and the potential danger to staff and inmates from such conduct," Bower wrote attorney Phil Gordon. ... McKenzie said Monday that the idea she smuggled anything during visits to murderer Lance Conway Wood at the Idaho State Correctional Institution south of Boise is "just crazy"/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman.
