Massey sentenced for voter fraud
ASHLAND — A 45-year-old New Albany man has been sentenced to two years in prison for perjury in a Benton County voter fraud case, according to Attorney General Jim Hood.
Hood says Larry Massey pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of perjury after changing the facts of his testimony in a voter fraud case. Massey was sentenced to five years with three suspended with two years to serve and three years of post release supervision.
Massey was already serving two years after an April conviction of conspiracy to commit voter fraud. Hood says yesterday’s sentence will run concurrent to the conspiracy sentence.
Massey was among 16 people arrested in an alleged vote-buying scheme during the 2007 elections. Two people have been convicted and seven others have pleaded guilty and awaiting sentence. Hood says charges are pending against seven others.
