The Ohio nun who cast a ballot on behalf of a nun who died prior to last year's presidential election has pleaded guilty to an illegal voting charge. Sister Marguerite Kloos, former dean at the College of Mt. St. Joseph in Cincinnati escaped a prison sentence of up to 18 months by pleading guilty. As a first-time offender, she has been sentenced to community service. Kloos remains on staff at the College as a religious studies instructor.
Court documents say that Kloos forged Sister Rose Marie Hewitt's signature and mailed in the absentee ballot. Assistant Hamilton County Prosecutor Bill Anderson said the charge against Kloos will be erased from her record once she has fulfilled the diversion program, including community service.
