NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- A New Albany man receives a suspended sentence after pleading guilty in a case of voter fraud.

Joshua Clemons, 37, pleaded guilty to fraudulent delivery of ballots in court on Thursday, Oct. 17, and received a suspended sentence of one year and 180 days.

His voting rights were also suspended.

He and Paul Etheridge were indicted in 2012.

Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson says the two falsely obtained and marked absentee ballots.

Etheridge pleaded guilty in March and also received a suspended sentence as well as community service.
