Keefer was charged with five violations of the election code relating to absentee ballots. Geary was charged with seven violations of the same provision. In addition, both men were charged with one count of unlawful assistance in voting and two counts of conspiracy. Former supervisor Walter "Deb" Wiltrout was charged with three counts related to unlawful assistance of two voters. Keefer, Geary, and Wiltrout visited elderly voters' homes to help them complete ballots despite knowing the voters were physically able to vote in-person on Election Day, and also failed to fill out declarations of physical disability with the ballots, which certify that the voters wouldn't be able to vote in-person. Keefer obtained six votes that way, Geary obtained seven, and Wiltrout two. All three were admitted into a pretrial diversionary program in Fayette County Court.||Pre-Trial Intervention: 6 months Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD)||http://www.heraldstandard.com/law_and_order/courts/bullskin-supervisors-accused-...||http://triblive.com/news/fayette/4868381-74/keefer-presentment-ballots||http://notenoughsaid.blog.com/2015/03/14/fayette-county-grand-jury-one-sealed-pr...||http://notenoughsaid.blog.com/files/2015/03/1stPresentment1.pdf||http://notenoughsaid.blog.com/files/2015/03/2ndPresentment1.pdf|
