A Fort Worth woman charged with voter fraud was arrested and appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey L. Cureton on Tuesday.

Sonia Leticia Solis, 54, was charged with voting multiple times in the 2012 primary runoff election in Cameron County, according to a press release from the FBI’s San Antonio Division.

An indictment alleges that Solis cast five votes by absentee ballot under the names of five different people.

If convicted, she faces a maximum five-year prison sentence and $10,000 fine.

Solis, who lived in Brownsville at the time of the July 31, 2012 primary, is expected to appear in federal court in Brownsville on Aug. 28, according to court personnel.
