MILWAUKEE — A former aide to Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker has been sentenced to a year of probation after she was convicted of doing campaign work on county time.

Darlene J. Wink was also ordered Thursday to pay a fine and court costs of $2,000. She pleaded guilty last year to two misdemeanor counts of political solicitation by a public employee.

Wink worked for Walker when he was the Milwaukee County executive.

She faced up to a year in prison and a $2,000 fine.
