BENTON COUNTY — Three sentences have been handed down in a Benton County voter fraud case.

Attorney General Jim Hood says in a news release that Circuit Judge Andrew Howorth yester sentenced Tate King to one year in prison for his conviction on two counts of voter fraud. King will also serve two years on house arrest and two years of post-release supervision.

Hood says Henry Massey’s conviction on conspiracy to commit voter fraud drew a year of house arrest and two years of post-release supervision. And, Hood says Lillie Jean Norton received three years of probation for conspiracy to commit voter fraud.

Hood says 16 defendants have either pleaded guilty or were convicted of vote buying in Benton County during elections in 2007.
