Three illegal aliens in Illinois were indicted on felony charges for voting in the 2016 election.
The clerk’s office of Lake County, north of Chicago, discovered the alleged crimes, charging three illegal aliens with perjury for misrepresenting their citizenship. Two other local residents were charged with voting twice, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The charges against the five local residents began with information uncovered by the Lake County clerk’s office, and then the cases were developed through an investigation by the Lake County state’s attorney’s office.
Marcelo Villaruz and his wife, Gina Villaruz of Beach Park, Illinois, and Yvette Yust of Waukegan were charged with 3 felonies, which carry a potential sentence of probation or two to five years in prison upon conviction.
