Guymon Sentenced To Thirty Days In Jail For Voter Fraud
Guymon Sentenced To Thirty Days In Jail For Voter Fraud

A former Mitchell man who voted twice in the June Mitchell School Board election was sentenced to thirty days in jail today. Craig Guymon, who has since moved to Platte, was ordered to serve ten days immediately, ten days beginning September 1, 2014, and ten days beginning September 1, 2015. Guymon spoke before being sentenced, saying voting twice was the most foolish decision he has made in his life. He said he was frustrated and that his emotions overran his brain. Judge Tim Bjorkman sentenced Guymon to 180 days in jail, but suspended 150 of them.  He told Guymon that by voting twice, he was telling his fellow citizens that his voice was twice as important as theirs. Bjorkman also ordered Guymon to pay nearly 1,200 dollars in court costs and restitution.  Guymon will also be on probation for two years.
