Mitchell double-voter agrees to plead guilty



MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A man accused of voting twice in the Mitchell School Board election plans to change his plea to guilty.
 
Fifty-four-year-old Craig Guymon earlier pleaded not guilty to a felony voter fraud charge that carries a maximum punishment of two years in prison and or a $4,000 fine.
 
Guymon has agreed to plead guilty in a deal in which prosecutors will not recommend a particular sentence to the judge.
 
A change-of-plea hearing is set for Tuesday for Guymon, who is known for being a vocal critic of Mitchell school district officials. Authorities say he voted in person during the morning of the June 4 election and then cast an absentee ballot that afternoon at the Davison County Auditor's office.
