A former Tucson state lawmaker has been sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to forging petition signatures in his attempt to get on the 2008 general election ballot.

KOLD-TV reports former Rep. John Kromko was originally facing three felony counts, but pleaded out to one misdemeanor count of petition forgery and one felony count of attempted fraud that will drop to a misdemeanor when he serves out his probation over two years.

Under the agreement, Kromko acknowledged he placed the names of 29 people on petitions without permission.

The Democrat served in the House from 1976 to 1990 and was running again for a seat in Legislative District 27.
