Two former Bison football players complete community serviceFARGO – Two former North Dakota State University football players have cleared their community service obligations to Cass County court after being accused of failing to complete their sentences for misdemeanor election fraud on time.
Don Carter, 21, told a Cass County judge he completed his 50 hours of service to Restore Inc. at an order to show cause hearing in District Court Monday.
Carter and 12 other people pleaded guilty to forging signatures on two petition forms last summer for North Dakota ballot initiatives.
Aireal Boyd was also accused of failing to complete his 50 hours of community service. At an order to show cause hearing last week, he said he had completed his community service, according to Cass County prosecutor Cherie Clark.
A bench warrant has been issued for D.J. McNorton, a third former NDSU football player accused of failing to complete his service.
