 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A former state lawmaker who admitted he bought Ohio State football tickets with campaign money and sold them for a personal profit won't serve any jail time but was ordered to pay a $2,000 fine.
A Franklin County judge on Tuesday ordered former state Rep. John Widowfield to pay the fine after Widowfield pleaded guilty to two first degree misdemeanor charges - filing a false financial disclosure statement and converting campaign funds into personal use.
Both of the charges carried a possible six-month jail sentence.
The Republican from Cuyahoga Falls near Akron resigned from the Legislature in May. He apologized earlier this month and said he had reimbursed his campaign $13,676 to cover the profit from the ticket sales.
