She was first arrested back in October when she tried to submit a second ballot at a satellite voting station during Iowa's early-voting period.

Rote told police she voted twice after buying the then-candidate's election-rigging claims and thought her first vote would be flipped to a vote for Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, according to CBS News.

Lawyers involved in the case reportedly recommended Rote be sentenced to two years of probation, though the crime can carry up to five years in prison.

Rote's court-ordered attorney said Rote had "significant mental deficits" and "cognitive limitations" that would prevent her from standing a fair trial during a court filing in January, the Des Moines Register reports.

Rote's sentencing is scheduled for August 15.
