DOTHAN, Ala (WDHN)—The motion to intervene and halt the sentencing for activist Kenneth Glasgow, who is charged with multiple federal crimes, has been struck down.

Glasgow stated in early November that he intended to plead guilty to federal charges of tax evasion, mail fraud, and drug charges.

The motion to intervene, filed Wednesday by community activists Ruth Page-Nelson and Andrea Eggleston Mayo, states that Glasgow was unfairly targeted by the authorities, Houston County officials, and maybe even Governor Kay Ivey. It was also said that Glasgow’s prosecution is “selective” and “retaliatory in nature”.

Mayo and Page-Nelson called for an independent investigation into Alabama prisons and the “ongoing corruption in Houston County, Alabama.” They also went into detail about what they described as a corruption coverup in Houston County involving Glasgow and local police.

The motion to strike the intervention, filed Friday, says Mayo and Page-Nelson are not potential parties and have no standing to intervene in the case.
