Altavista councilman Timothy George plead guilty to two counts of Election Office Neglect Duty in Campbell County Circuit Court on Tuesday afternoon.
George was sentenced to ten days of home confinement, two $250 fines, and 150 hours of community service. He must be on good behavior for ten years.
The Virginia State Police on behalf of the Commonwealth of Virginia spent over a year investigating this case. At times, they had three different investigators working on it.
