Al Sharpton's Brother Sentenced to Over 2 Years in Prison for Drug Trafficking, Tax Evasion

Rev Al Sharpton’s half-brother, Pastor Kenneth Sharpton Glasgow, was sentenced to 30 months in prison for drug trafficking, social security fraud, and tax evasion.

Kenneth Sharpton Glasgow pleaded guilty in February to charges relating to embezzling $407,000 from a TOPS nonprofit and another nonprofit called the Prodigal Child.

Glasgow also conspired with another man to distribute cocaine, leading to the drug trafficking charge.

Glasgow will return to court at the end of this month to face a separate charge against him for assaulting a police officer.

As The New York Post reported, Glasgow admitted to not paying income taxes on thousands of dollars that he withdrew from his charity organizations and falsely claiming on Social Security forms that he had trouble driving to receive disability benefits.

Glasgow, 56, received numerous citations at around 27 different traffic stops between 2015 and 2020, all of which indicated that he was the driver, prosecutors said.

The Christian Post reported:

Pastor Kenneth Sharpton Glasgow, the troubled younger half-brother of civil rights activist Al Sharpton and founder of felon voting rights advocacy organization, The Ordinary People Society in Dothan, Alabama, was sentenced to 30 months in prison Thursday for drug trafficking, income tax evasion, and lying to obtain Social Security disability benefits.

Glasgow, 58, who also runs Kenny Sharpton-Glasgow Ministries International, previously pleaded guilty to the charges, News 4 reported. “As far as we’re concerned, it was a fair sentence,” Jim Parkman, one of Glasgow’s defense attorneys, told the news outlet after the sentencing hearing.

Glasgow pleaded guilty to embezzling $407,000 from TOPS and another nonprofit he founded called the Prodigal Child Project. The prosecutor in Glasgow’s case alleged that he may have taken more than $1 million from his nonprofits without reporting the income, but U.S. District Judge R. Austin Huffaker rejected that claim.

Glasgow was charged with capital murder in 2018, but the charges were dropped in 2021.

The Grand Jury ruled “there is insufficient evidence to establish enough probable cause to take Reverend Kenneth Glasgow to trial for the capital murder charge” of 23-year-old Breunia Jennings.
