The protester maintains she had no knowledge she was always on probation after a seven-year sentence, and that she assumed her democratic rights had been reinstated in 2019. “I didn’t lie about anything.” All I did was try to reclaim my voting rights in the manner in which the electoral commission and the clerk instructed me.” Judge Mark Ward accused Pamela Moses of “tricking the probation department” to get the right to vote unlawfully. “You deceived and with malafide intention did dirty to the probation department into handing you documentation indicating and falsely implicating that you were no longer on probation.” Furthermore, the honorable court stated in the words “ You voted six times as a convicted criminal which is highly illegal after being sentenced to a misdemeanor in 2015.” Moses, on the other hand, said that when she agreed to plead guilty in 2015, no one told her she didn’t have the right to vote.
