Fresno woman pleads No Contest to Voter Fraud

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

The woman accused of forging dozens of signatures on behalf of a Fresno City Councilmember has pleaded "no contest" to voter fraud.

Investigators say 52-year-old Darlene Holland turned in 100 forged voter signatures for Councilmember Cynthia Sterling and Council Candidate Oliver Baines.

Sterling is running for a County Supervisors seat and Baines is running for Sterling's seat on the council.

In exchange for the no contest plea, thirty other felony charges against Holland have been dropped. She will be sentenced on November 16th.
