HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A western Kentucky man has pleaded guilty to a slew of drug-related charges and took a 10-year prison sentence in an effort to keep prosecutors from seizing his home.
The Kentucky New Era reported (http://bit.ly/1fmuqnR ) that 75-year-old Lloyd C. Majors of Pembroke entered the plea to dealing narcotics while out on bond on similar charges.
Commonwealth's Attorney Lynn Pryor brought a motion in the first case to revoke Majors' $103,000 bond, which was tied to his home, when word of his latest violation was discovered.
In danger of losing his home, it appears Majors pleaded guilty in order to save it from seizure for his family's benefit.
Majors may have saved his home, he forfeited the $10,000 cash bond he posted by admitting that the money came from drug-dealing activities.
