A Hamilton County poll worker was in court Tuesday facing charges of voter fraud.

Melowese Richardson, 58, pleaded no contest to four counts of illegal voting. Four additional charges were dropped.

Judge Robert Ruehlman found Richards guilty of those four counts. She will be sentenced on July 7.

The prosecutor's office says Richardson voted twice on her own behalf and seven times on behalf of her relatives in various elections. 

Richardson has served as a poll worker in Hamilton County for at least 14 years.
