A Former Shasta Lake City Councilwoman has been sentenced to 30 days in the Shasta County Jail.
Dolores Lucero was found guilty of submitting documents with falsified claims of voter fraud in August. In addition to 30 days in jail, Lucero will serve 30 days community service and attend counseling.
In court today Lucero's request for motion of new trial was denied. The prosecution asked that Lucero serve 240 days in jail, while Lucero's attorney asked that credit be granted for time served.
Lucero was facing a maximum sentence of three years in prison, but the probation department had recommended she serve eight months.
