A conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in the Lake of the Ozarks comes a step closer to on Monday with the sentencing in federal court of a Louisiana man. 29-year-old Kenneth Harvey Hudson, of Bossier City, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Brian C. Wimes to spend the next 11 years in federal prison without the possibility of parole. Hudson had pleaded guilty earlier this year for his role in the methamphetamine conspiracy. Hudson was arrested at a gas station in Osage Beach along with co-defendants Phillip Dennington and Sir Master Ford, also from Louisiana. At the time, a search of their vehicle revealed over 900 grams of meth and four firearms. Ford entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to two years for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Dennington entered his plea in connection to the conspiracy and awaits his sentencing.
