Gabriel Hays, Fox News, February 25, 2023

Rev. Al Sharpton’s half-brother pleaded guilty to tax evasion, mail fraud, and drug conspiracy charges on Friday.

Kenneth Glasgow, an Alabama pastor, voting rights activist and half-brother to the famous Black pastor and MSNBC host, entered a guilty plea in Montgomery, Alabama federal court Friday {snip}


However, throughout his active political career, prosecutors claimed Glasgow admitted he has failed to pay income taxes on thousands of dollars he withdrew from his two charities, and that he also committed Social Security fraud.

AP stated that Glasgow claimed “Social Security disability benefits by falsely claiming on mailed forms that he had trouble driving.” However, prosecutors noted that the minister received several traffic citations between 2015 and 2020 providing evidence that he had been driving.

In addition to fraud, Sharpton’s half-brother pleaded guilty to a drug conspiracy charge. He was recently found in possession of cocaine he was intent on distributing. {snip}

In 2018, Glasgow was arrested on capital murder charges for the death of 23-year-old Breunia Jennings, who prosecutors claimed was shot in the head by someone in Glasgow’s car.

However, as a local outlet reported, a federal grand jury deemed evidence was insufficient to proceed with the case {snip}

The U.S. attorney’s office claimed on Friday that the charges Glasgow pleaded guilty to could land him in prison for up to 20 years. {snip}
