Columbiana County woman to be sentenced for voter fraud

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Friday that an Ohio woman has pleaded guilty to charges relating to voter fraud in Columbiana County. 34 year old Rebecca Hammonds pleaded guilty to 13 counts of making a false registration and one count of election falsification. Hammonds, of East Liverpool, was indicted in May after a Bureau of Criminal Investigation probe found that she had created false voter registration documents while working for the Ohio Organizing Collaborative to register voters in Columbiana County between September and October of 2015. The local board of elections first discovered the false records after finding that several newly registered voters were deceased. The case is being prosecuted by the Columbiana County Prosecutor’s Office with assistance from the Ohio Attorney General’s Special Prosecutions Section. Hammonds is scheduled to be sentenced March 6.
