eBay vote seller gets 50 hours of community service

Max Sanders , the University student accused of trying to sell his vote on eBay , will not face criminal charges if he completes 50 hours of community service.

The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday that Sanders must complete the community service within the next six months.

Sanders was charged with a felony for bribery, treating and solicitation earlier this month after advertising his presidential election vote on the auction Web site.

The community service will take place with the Office of Hennepin County Elections.

Although it wasn’t likely to happen, Sanders could have faced up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
