A former Brownsville woman was sentenced to six months home confinement and five years of probation for voter fraud, court documents show.

Sonia Leticia Solis, of Fort Worth, pleaded guilty on Nov. 4, 2013, to voting more than once in a Cameron County runoff election in 2012.

The indictment alleged Solis was a resident of Brownsville during the 2012 elections and voted five times in five different names on absentee ballots.

There were eight Cameron County primary runoff races, with seven of those being Democrat Party runoffs and one being in the Republican Party.

Those runoffs included the race between Carlos R. Masso and Luis V. Saenz for District Attorney and the race for Justice of the Peace Precinct 2, Place 2, between Yolanda Teran Begum and Erin H. Garcia.

There were also runoff races for Precinct No. 2 constable; Precinct No. 5 constable; and Democrat chairman for precincts 62 and 73.

Additionally, during that primary, both Republicans and Democrats competed in a runoff for the newly-created District 34 House of Representatives seat.

U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela, who was elected to the position, faced Denise Saenz Blanchard in the Democratic Party runoff. On the Republican Party ticket, Jessica Puente Bradshaw and Adela Garza faced off in a primary campaign.

Solis pleaded guilty to voting in the names of Samuel Pedraza, Francisco Pedraza, Cynthia Pedraza, Dannie Vargas and Issic Guerra on July 31, 2012.

Voting more than once is a violation of United States Code, Section 1973i(e).
