MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Milwaukee man has pleaded guilty to illegally voting five times last year in West Milwaukee.

Fifty-six-year-old Leonard K. Brown did not actually live in West Milwaukee when he voted there.

Brown still faces a charge of voting twice in the November presidential election and making a false statement to an election official on election day. Those cases have been rescheduled for trial in January. His sentencing on the five convictions resulting from Monday's pleas will be scheduled sometime after that trial.

Brown was among 10 people charged in March with a variety of charges related to voter fraud.

Brown is now prohibited from voting until his civil rights are restored.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the cases against the other nine defendants have all been resolved.
