A convicted felon from Woodbury was sentenced to three years of probation after authorities discovered he voted in the 2010 election.
Steven Larry Richie, 58, admitted that he voted at St. John Lutheran Church in the Nov. 2, 2010, election, according to the criminal complaint.
In a July 2011 interview with police, Richie acknowledged he was on probation, but he “did not consider himself to be a convicted felon,” the complaint says.
Court records show that he was convicted of burglary in 2007 and sentenced to five years of probation in early 2008.
Investigators found that he completed a voter-registration card but also registered the same day at the church, according to the complaint.
The Washington County Elections Division requested the investigation, the complaint says.
Under conditions of his probation, Richie must also pay a $50 fine and complete 40 hours of community service.
