Dothan pastor denied early release from prison

DOTHAN, Ala (WDHN) —  A Dothan pastor and activist has been denied an early release from federal prison in an order brought down this week.

Kenneth Glasgow, pastor and founder of The Ordinary People’s Society (T.O.P.S.) and Prodigal Child Project (PCP) was sentenced to 30 months in prison for drug conspiracy, social security, and mail fraud in July of 2023.

After spending around seven months in a federal prison, Glasgow asked for a reduced sentence.

In his initial argument in January 2024, 58-year-old Glasgow claimed he had a “myriad” of medical issues and listed them as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes mellitus, asthma, obesity, and limited mobility.

Glasgow said if released, he wants to help people who struggle with substance abuse and wants people to learn from the mistakes he has made.

U.S. District Judge R. Austin Huffaker denied Glasgow’s request for an early release on Wedneday, April 24.

Glasgow is currently serving his sentence in a federal correctional facility in Jesup, Georgia, and has a projected release date of June 29, 2025.
