Federal prosecutors in St. Louis indicted Deidra Humphrey, an ACORN voter registration recruiter, on federal voter fraud charges, U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway announced Monday.

According to the indictment, Humphrey gathered voter registrations for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now and for the Missouri Progressive Vote Coalition between June and August. The indictment also states Humphrey submitted some false and forged voter registration cards to the election boards in St. Louis and St. Louis County.

Humphrey, 44, of East St. Louis, Ill., was indicted by a federal grand jury Dec. 31 on two felony counts of voter registration fraud. She is expected to appear in federal court early this week.

Each count carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and/or fines between $10,000 and $250,000, but it’s not yet known what penalty Humphrey, if convicted, would face under the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines.
