DOVER, DE (AP) – Delaware State Auditor Kathy McGuiness has been sentenced to one year of probation and ordered to pay a $10,000 fine and complete 500 hours of community service. As auditor, McGuiness is responsible for rooting out government fraud, waste, and abuse. She was convicted of misdemeanor official misconduct and conflict of interest after her daughter was hired as a part-time worker in her office. She’s the first statewide elected official in Delaware to be convicted on criminal charges while in office. McGuiness maintains her innocence and lost re-election to attorney Lydia York in the Democrat primary. Her attorney said that she resigned effective Nov. 4.
