According to the Journal Sentinel, Gigowski used an old driver's license to vote in Greenfield, Wis. on election day, signing a form stating he was a Greenfield resident. Later in the day, Gigowski used a Department of Workforce Development letter, addressed to him at a Milwaukee address, to register and vote in Milwaukee. He also signed a form stating that he had not previously voted in the election. 

In exchange for his guilty plea, prosecutors dropped two other counts, fraudulent registration and registering in more than one place. But while Assistant District Attorney Bruce Landgraf recommended a nine-month sentence, Gigowski's attorney had argued that no prison time was necessary. Gigowski's sentence includes work-release privileges. He will also be on probation for 2 1/2 years.
