New Albany man indicted for perjury

By The Assocated Press

ASHLAND — A Benton County grand jury has indicted a 45-year-old New Albany man on two counts of perjury related to a voter fraud case.

Attorney General Jim Hood says Larry Massey is accused of lying while testifying in a 2008 Benton County voter fraud case.

Hood says Massey had entered into a plea deal in return for testifying against his co-defendants. Hood says Massey changed his testimony while on the stand.

Hood says Massey could get up to 10 years in prison on each count if convicted.

Massey pleaded guilty in 2008 to his role in an alleged vote-buying scheme. He was among 16 people arrested in the case that involved incidents during the 2007 elections.

Massey is awaiting sentencing on conspiracy to commit voter fraud.
