( Hamilton County ) - Charges of voter fraud against three people have been announced by the Hamilton County Prosecutor.
Joe Deters, the Hamilton County Prosecutor, said the three people facing charges are 75-year-old Russell Glassop, 59-year-old Melowese Richardson and 54-year-old Sister Marguerite Kloos. Glassop and Kloos are facing one charge of illegal voting each and face up to 18 months in prison if convicted. Richardson on the other hand faces up to 12 years in prison for 8 counts of illegal voting if convicted.
According to Deters, Glassop voted for his deceased wife in the 2012 presidential election. Glassop's wife had previously requested an absentee ballot but died before the ballots were mailed out. Deters reports that Glassop cast the absentee ballot under his wife's name.
Deters said Kloos cast a ballot for another nun in the 2012 presidential election and plans to plead guilty to the charge of illegal voting.
Richardson allegedly cast ballots in multiple elections for family members and is charged with 8 counts of illegally voting. Deters said that she has worked in Hamilton County since 1998 as a poll worker.
Three other cases of possible voter fraud are still under investigation, Deters said.
