Minister Is Sentenced To 16 Years In Prison

LONDON, Ky. (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a southeastern
Kentucky minister to more than 16 years in prison for laundering
drug money and hiding a federal fugitive.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that U.S. District Judge
Danny Reeves on Thursday sentenced 60-year-old Clay County Baptist
minister Wayne Reid to 194 months.

Reid and his wife, 59-year-old Donna Reid, were convicted in
September in U.S. District Court in Manchester on charges they
concealed about $1.5 million in proceeds of Larry Golden Jackson
Jr.'s marijuana business from January 2000 to November 2005. They
were also convicted on charges of hiding a fugitive after Jackson
was indicted but fled in 2002.
