(2008-07-15)
(WOUB) - An Ohio University student has admitted to voting twice in the March Primary.

21-year old Carolyn Kleinhert pleaded guilty to felony election falsification in Athens County Common Pleas Court this afternoon.

Prosecutors say the Hudson, Ohio native got an issues only absentee ballot from her home county of Summit County and sent it in.

Then, on election day, investigators say she got a provisional ballot from Athens County to vote in the Democratic primary and told elections officials she never got the absentee ballot from Summit County.

Kleinhert was sentenced to participate in the Prosecutor's Diversion Program.

She had faced the possibility of 6 to 12 months behind bars.
