NAACP official convicted of voter fraud

Sowers guilty on ten voter fraud counts


After two days of testimony and an hour of deliberation, a Tunica County jury returned a guilty verdict in the case against community activist Lessadolla Sowers.

Sowers was convicted of 10 counts of voter fraud and was sentenced to five years for each count. Circuit Court Judge Charles Webster ordered Sowers to serve her terms concurrently with no possibility of parole. She was also ordered to pay restitution and court costs.


Two days testimony and one hour of deliberation nets 50 years?? I haven't read the details but this has to be very blatant.

I do not believe concurrent means what you think it means.

The sentence is 5 years without parole.

I doubt this reflects the whole of the NAACP, they should be speaking out against what she did, expel her and prevent some other misguided person from doing what she did as best they can. All you can ask really.

Of course it doesn't; just in areas where they have candidates running for office.

It is curious. 31 absentee ballots seized by the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation. 21 of the ballots/charges dropped. 10 remained. I wonder what she did, exactly?

Concurrent means at the same time-10 counts at 5 years each served concurrently is 5 years.

Consecutive means one after another-10 counts at 5 years each served consecutively is 50 years.
