Poll worker sentenced for illegal voting

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Hamilton County poll worker was sentenced on Wednesday for illegal voting.

Melowese Richardson, 58, will spend the next five years behind bars.

Richardson pleaded no contest to four counts of illegal voting in May. An additional four counts were dropped.

The prosecutor's office says Richardson voted twice on her own behalf and seven times on behalf of her relatives in various elections.

Richardson served as a poll worker in Hamilton County for at least 14 years.
