BROWNSVILLE, Texas, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- A Texas woman has been indicted for allegedly voting multiple times in a primary runoff election, federal prosecutors said.

Sonia Leticia Solis, 54, was living in Brownsville on July 31, 2012, when she cast five absentee ballots for five individuals, a federal indictment states.

Prosecutors said Solis now lives in Fort Worth but a federal judge is expected to order her to return to Brownsville to face trial.

A statement by federal prosecutors did not say which Cameron County offices were up for election or whether the outcome of any of the races could be influenced if the voter fraud allegations are proved true.
