Halfaday to Serve 4 Months Before Probation can Resume
Former Charlottesville City Council candidate James Halfaday will spend four months behind bars before his probation can resume.
Halfaday was found guilty of election fraud last year after he used a false address to certify his candidacy for council in 2011. As part of his probation, he was told to not have any contact with his partner, after allegedly making phone threats from jail. In court in January, prosecutors said Halfaday sent his partner an email earlier in the month.
Following a defense request on Thursday to suspend jail-time all together, the judge ruled that Halfaday will stay in jail for four months.
At the end of that time, he can then file to move his probation to Illinois. Halfaday has family in Illinois and will most likely move, and have his parole transferred, there upon completion of his jail time.
