Wis. prosecutors charge man with voting illegally

MADISON (AP) -- Prosecutors have charged a Milwaukee man with voting illegally in the 2008 presidential election.

The state Justice Department announced Friday that Correy Grady faces one count of felony election fraud. He could get up to three years and six months in prison and $10,000 in fines if he's convicted.

According to a criminal complaint, Grady, now 33, was convicted in 2006 of being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, both felonies. He was on probation when he voted in 2008.

Wisconsin law prohibits anyone who hasn't completed a felony sentence from voting.

Online court records did not list the case on Friday. Grady's attorney in the gun and cocaine case didn't immediately return a message.
