DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - A fourth person has been sentenced for voter fraud in connection with a 2013 Dothan City Commission election.

The Dothan Eagle (https://bit.ly/1Q1HFhh) reports 38-year-old Daniel W. Reynolds III was sentenced to two years of probation on Monday after pleading guilty to three counts of absentee ballot fraud.

Reynolds was arrested in July 2014, along with three others who were convicted last year of falsifying absentee ballots in the Dothan District 2 election between Amos Newsome and Lamesa Danzey.

The newspaper reports Newsome received 119 of 124 absentee ballots despite challenger Danzey having beaten him at the polls. Newsome beat Danzey by 14 votes.

Newsome remains District 2 commissioner. He has not been charged with any wrongdoing in connection with his campaign.
