Judge set to sentence Walker's former aide

MADISON (AP) -

A Milwaukee judge is set to sentence 1 of Gov. Scott Walker's former top aides for doing campaign work on the taxpayers' time.

Kelly Rindfleisch pleaded guilty last month to one felony count of misconduct in office in a deal with prosecutors.

She faces up to 3.5 years in prison and $10,000 in fines when Judge David Hansher sentences her Monday afternoon. Prosecutors have said they won't seek restitution and will recommend jail time rather than prison, but the ultimate decision will be up to the judge.

The 44-year-old Rindfleisch served as Walker's deputy chief of staff during Walker's tenure as Milwaukee County executive in 2010. Prosecutors accused her of working on Republican Brett Davis' lieutenant governor campaign on county time.
