Illegal alien who voted in TN: Why no indictment?

We previously reported on the illegal alien who voted in the 2008 Presidential election who has now applied for citizenship.  The Department of Homeland security sent the illegal alien a letter asking them to take their name off the voter rolls as a condition for citizenship. 

Foundry raises an important point: why isn't this person in prison?  A crime was committed:

Voting in elections when you are not a citizen is a felony under federal law. 18 U.S.C. § 1015(f) makes it illegal to claim you are a U.S. citizen in order to register to vote for any election, punishable by up to five years in prison; fraudulent registration and voting is also a felony under the National Voter Registration Act. 18 U.S.C. § 611 prohibits a noncitizen from voting in an election where there is a federal candidate on the ballot. False claims of citizenship in general are also felonies under federal law, 18 U.S.C. § 911, punishable by up to three years in prison.
