2 Worcester men face voter fraud charges

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Two Worcester men are facing voter fraud charges stemming from last month's municipal election.

Fifty-year-old Mark Atlas is charged with voting under someone else's name.

Authorities say 57-year-old Richard Suchocki provided Atlas with the name and address of another registered voter.

Police began investigating when that voter went to cast his ballot on Nov. 5 and was told he had already checked in.

Suchocki's lawyer tells The Telegram & Gazette (http://bit.ly/1bfJP78 ) that his client "denies that he has done anything wrong" and will be exonerated.

Atlas could not be reached for comment.

Authorities did not disclose a possible motive.
