An attorney from Shaker Heights was found guilty of two counts of election fraud for voting twice in the 2020 and 2022 general elections, according to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. James Saunders, 56, was found guilty by a Cuyahoga County jury Tuesday, Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced in the news release.

“Mr. Saunders is the poster child for voter fraud. He thought he could outsmart the system, but today’s verdict proves he was wrong,” O’Malley said. “Judge Santoli’s verdict and remanding of this defendant sends a stern message that voter fraud will not be tolerated.”

Saunders will be sentenced at the Cuyahoga County Justice Center on Monday, Aug. 28. Election fraud is a fourth-degree felony in Ohio, according to the state’s revised statutes, and is punishable by six to 18 months in prison.
