A 60-year-old Racine man has pleaded guilty to election fraud.

Mark Demet is accused of falsely signing the names of seven people on recall election petitions in late 2011 and early 2012 for state Sen. Van Wanggaard, R-Racine.

The Journal Times reports he pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of election fraud and, in exchange, prosecutors agreed to dismiss seven other identity fraud charges against him.

Defense attorney Patrick Cafferty said Demet also has been under investigation in Kenosha County. Formal criminal charges have not been filed there.

Demet's sentencing hearing is June 7.
