Election Fraud Cases
Deborah Carroll pleaded guilty to one felony count of forging signatures on an initiative petition to re-establish a coastal zone management program. One of the initiative's sponsors noticed inconsistencies with the signatures Carroll had collected and reported the matter to the authorities. Carroll was sentenced to serve two years in jail followed by three years' probation.
Alvaro Jimenez-Aguilar, an illegal alien who overstayed his visitor's visa, was convicted of falsely claiming to be a U.S. citizen and filing a false Social Security application. He had assumed the identity of his deceased nephew by obtaining his birth certificate and other documents and applying for other documentation and benefits. He also registered to vote in Alaska under his nephew's name, despite being ineligible because he is not a U.S. citizen. Jimenez-Aguilar was sentenced to time served and one year of supervised release, and his case was transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be processed for deportation.
Mejorada-Lopez, a Mexican citizen, completed several voter registration applications to register to vote in Alaska and voted in the 2000, 2002, and 2004 general elections. He was charged with three counts of voting by a non-citizen in violation of 18 U.S.C. 611 and was sentenced to probation for one year after pleading guilty.
