First conviction handed down for voter fraud among group who registered to vote at Alachua County Jail

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Daniel Dion Roberts, 48, has been sentenced to three years in state prison after reaching a plea deal on charges that he lied on a voter registration form and voted fraudulently in the 2020 Primary and General elections.

Roberts is currently serving multiple concurrent sentences in state prison on nine felony charges with a scheduled release date in September of 2025. The new sentence will be concurrent with the previous sentence and will not change his release date.

Roberts, who pled no contest to a charge of swearing falsely and two counts of fraudulent voting by an unqualified voter, is the first to be convicted of the ten felons who allegedly fraudulently registered to vote in 2020 and then voted in at least one election that year.

Roberts is one of at least ten inmates of the Alachua County Jail who registered as a result of visits to the jail by former Supervisor of Elections Outreach Coordinator Thomas “T.J.” Pyche; a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation concluded that this “showed a haphazard registration of inmates and could compromise the integrity of the Florida Voter Registration System.” The investigator wrote, “While it is ultimately incumbent upon the registrant to know their own personal circumstances before they affirm [statements that they are not convicted felons], the overall conclusion from multiple inmate interviews was they were either told or believed they were able to legally register and/or vote.”

  • Just one of the many ways the Democrats stole the election.

  • Are they going to start sending coordinators to the cemeteries to be readily available for questions about voter eligibility since “it is ultimately incumbent upon the registrant to know their own personal circumstances before they affirm”?

    • And to the nursing homes, where they routinely harvest ballots from dementia patients…

  • If “the overall conclusion from multiple inmate interviews was they were either told or believed they were able to legally register and/or vote,” then why are people being imprisoned? These folks thought they were legally voting, without nefarious intent. They’d been told they could vote ffs.
