COURTESY: CRESCENT CITY (KIEM)

CRESCENT CITY, Calif. (KIEM)-The Crescent City’s New Mayor Pro Tem Alex Campbell pleaded guilty Tuesday to election fraud in Del Norte County’s Superior Court according to the clerk’s office.

Campbell faced two felony counts of perjury and one count of false declaration of candidacy.

At this point no charges have been dismissed, however, normally charges not included in a plea are dismissed at time of sentencing.

Crescent City Manager Office was alerted, back in January that Campbell did not live in Crescent City, which violates election laws.

All city council members must have a residence inside city limits.

Campbell allegedly owns a home in the county but rents a room within the city limits.

City Manager Eric Weir says Campbell formally resigned from office Tuesday afternoon.
