A former candidate for Charlottesville City Council who served time for election fraud now stands accused of violating his probation Monday.
James Robert Halfaday, 33, pleaded guilty last year to election fraud and was sentenced to 60 days in jail. He admitted to using a false address when he certified his candidacy for council in 2011.
Halfaday was arrested Monday by Albemarle police on Richmond Road. He was charged with a felony probation violation.
Halfaday is currently being held in the Charlottesville Albemarle Regional Jail.
There is no word yet on the nature of the parole violation.
