Ex-KKK head Ronald Wayne Edwards sentenced to 4 years on drug charges in KY
Not surprising that a KKK leader would get convicted on drug and gun charges. I think you have to hit big in the loser lottery to get to the point of even wanting to join the KKK much less become a leader in the org.
The founder and former grand wizard of a Kentucky-based Ku Klux Klan organization was sentenced Thursday to four years in prison on federal drug and gun charges.
U.S. District Judge Joseph McKinley in Owensboro also ordered Ronald Wayne Edwards, who headed the Imperial Klans of America in Dawson Springs in 1996, to serve three years under supervision after his release from prison. Klan watchers considered Edwards’ group to be one of the largest Klan organizations in the country, with chapters in several other states.
Edwards pleaded guilty in March to five charges he trafficked in methamphetamine and painkillers and carried a gun during at least one drug transaction. His longtime girlfriend, Christina A. Gillette, was sentenced to a year and one day in prison after admitting to drug charges.
