A Former Shasta Lake City Councilwoman sentenced to serve 30 days in jail has been transferred to another facility for her own safety.
Dolores Lucero was transferred to the Nevada County Jail on Saturday where she will complete her sentence. Shasta County officials say the move came as a result of safety concerns. With the high profile nature of her case officials feel Lucero will be safer at the Nevada County jail.
On Friday Lucero was sentenced to 30 days in jail. Lucero was found guilty in August of submitting documents with falsified claims of voter fraud. Lucero prepared the false documents when the City of Shasta Lake sought a recall election against her. The documents were her attempt to thwart the recall.
