LAS VEGAS (AP) — The defunct political advocacy group ACORN has pleaded guilty in a case alleging that canvassers were illegally paid to register Nevada voters during the 2008 presidential campaign.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Wednesday that ACORN defense attorney Lisa Rasmussen entered the guilty plea to one count of felony compensation for registration of voters.

Under a deal, 12 other felony counts were dropped against the organization.

ACORN faces a maximum $5,000 fine, and under the deal, prosecutors will not argue at the Aug. 10 sentencing hearing.

ACORN supervisor Amy Busefink pleaded no contest in November to two counts of conspiracy to commit the crime of compensation for registration of voters. She is appealing to the Nevada Supreme Court.
