LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former supervisor for the defunct political advocacy group ACORN has agreed to a plea deal in a case alleging that canvassers were illegally paid to register Nevada voters during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Amy Busefink, 28, of Seminole, Fla., pleaded the equivalent of a no-contest in state court to two misdemeanor counts of conspiracy to commit the crime of compensation for registration of voters. Her Alford plea acknowledged the state had evidence for a conviction at trial.

The plea agreement could get Busefink a year of probation, a $1,000 fine and 100 hours of community service.

Her lawyer, Kevin Stolworthy, says Busefink has never been in trouble before and entered the plea to "have some finality."
