CANTON, Miss. (AP) - Three people are facing felony voter fraud charges in Madison County in connection with Canton's disputed municipal elections last year.
District Attorney Michael Guest tells The Clarion-Ledger that the individuals, whose names have not been released, were indicted by a grand jury, and more indictments are likely on the way in coming months.
Ray Rosamond, an ex-alderman who lost the Democratic Ward 1 runoff election to Rodriquez Brown, has said the municipal elections - especially his race - were rife with fraud. He sees the indictments as a step toward long-awaited justice.
Guest said all three indicted last week are convicted felons who either registered or voted after being convicted of a disenfranchising crime.
