Former State Representative candidate indicted for voter fraud

Cory Ferraez, 28, turned himself in on a capias warrant Monday following an August indictment by a Lowndes County grand jury according to Attorney General Jim Hood.

(The following information is from Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood):

On count one, Ferraez was charged with swearing to a false application for an absentee ballot, and count two charged him with voting outside of his legal district. He faces up to five years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections and a $5,000 fine for count one and up to six months in jail and a fine of $200 on count two. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Ferraez was booked into the Lowndes County jail. He pleaded not guilty to both charges, and his arraignment was waived. A trial date was set for February 26, 2018.
