A man who voted twice in Mitchell's school board election in June will serve 30 days in jail for voter fraud.
Craig Guymon was sentenced Tuesday in Mitchell to 180 days in jail, with 150 days suspended. He was also ordered to pay $1,200 in fines, court costs and restitution within a month.
During sentencing, Guymon said he "made one of the most foolish decisions" of his life.
He'll serve 10 days immediately, followed by 10 days in September 2014 and the final 10 days in September 2015.
The judge denied Guymon's request for a suspended imposition, which would give him the chance to wipe the felony conviction from his record. But he can ask again toward the end of his two-year probation.
He has since moved to Platte.
