DELAWARE TOWNSHIP — A judge in Pike County sentenced a man Monday in an unusual election fraud case.

Jurors convicted the man of trying to fix the election of the board in his private community.

Myron Cowher, of the Wild Acres Lakes Development in Delaware Township, must serve at least one and a half years in prison.

Jurors convicted him on 217 counts related to forgery, identity theft, and a slew of other charges.

Prosecutors in the Poconos proved Cowher schemed to forge ballots back in May of 2014.
