Facing 13 felony counts for her role in paying people to register voters, former ACORN supervisor Amy Busefink opted to take an Alford plea to a pair of gross misdemeanors Monday before Judge Donald Mosley.

“She wants finality,” said defense attorney Kevin Stolworthy.

Under an Alford plea, a defendant does not acknowledge guilt but admits prosecutors can prove the case against her.

Mosley will sentence Busefink on Jan. 10. Prosecutors said they will not seek a prison term, but judges are not bound by such agreements.
