Three in petition fraud case skip community service

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Three former North Dakota State University football players charged in an election scandal last year are now accused of failing to complete the community service required by their probation agreements.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Three former North Dakota State University football players charged in an election scandal last year are now accused of failing to complete the community service required by their probation agreements.

The Forum newspaper reports that court cases have been reopened for D.J. McNorton, Aireal Boyd and Don Carter. They pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor election offense last fall but authorities say they haven't completed community service.

Phone numbers could not immediately be found for the men. Court documents list an attorney only for Don Carter, and the attorney declined comment because he hasn't spoken with Carter recently.

The faked names on petitions cost two proposed measures a spot on the November election ballot, including one on legalizing medical marijuana.
