Valdosta - A former city councilman pleads guilty to voter fraud in connection with an unsuccessful re-election.

Bunnis Williams admitted to illegally handling absentee ballots, soliciting false statements and illegally possessing absentee ballots during the 2001 election.

"We had fingerprints on envelopes, information from the post office, and all the evidence was very clear," said Lowndes County Sheriff Ashley Paulk.

In 1999, Williams was fined for illegally possessing absentee ballots in the runoff election for a General Assembly seat between Representative Ron Borders and Mark Eanes.

He will be sentenced March 19, and could serve up to 13 years in prison and be fined up to $111,000.00.
