CHARLOTTESVILLE — A former Charlottesville City Council candidate will spend 60 days in jail for using a false address on campaign filings.
Media outlets report that James Halfaday received a five-year sentence Thursday in Charlottesville Circuit Court. But Judge Edward Hogshire suspended all but 60 days of the term. The judge also ordered Halfaday to complete 40 hours of community service.
Halfaday pleaded guilty in August 2011 to a felony election fraud count.
Prosecutors say he no longer lived at an address he listed on campaign paperwork that he filed for the 2011 election.
The 33-year-old Democrat finished last out of seven candidates in the August 2011 primary.
Halfaday is no longer eligible to hold public office, vote or carry a firearm because he is a felon.
Now if someone would investigate Tom Garrett and Rusty McGuire for pulling the exact same thing in Louisa Co last year........
