Ex-alderman candidate sentenced for voter fraud

gavel_rgbCANTON — A former candidate for alderman in Canton has been given a five-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty to submitting a false voter registration application on behalf of a convicted felon.

District Attorney Michael Guest says in a news release Cobby Williams allegedly was going door-to-door in March of 2013 and registering people to vote and then turning in those registrations to the clerk’s office.

He says Williams registered a woman who is a convicted felon and not eligible to vote.

Guest says Williams recently pleaded guilty to one count of voter fraud. Williams also was placed on five years’ supervised probation.
