Feds seek 10-year term for TV pitchman Trudeau

Wednesday, 12 March 2014 16:24 Published in National News
CHICAGO (AP) - Prosecutors have described Kevin Trudeau as an "uncontrollable huckster" in urging a federal judge to imprison the TV pitchman for at least 10 years for bilking consumers through widely aired infomercials.
 
In a court filing in Chicago this week, they blast Trudeau as "an unrepentant, untiring and uncontrollable huckster." They add the 50-year-old is even likely to cheat fellow inmates. Sentencing is March 17.
 
Jurors convicted Trudeau of criminal contempt in November for violating a judge's order barring him from making false claims about his book, "The Weight Loss Cure They Don't Want You to Know About."
 
Prosecutors say Trudeau has not only refused to pay a $37 million judgment in a related civil case but bragged about his defiance.
 
Trudeau attorney Kimball Anderson didn't return a message seeking comment.

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - University City Police are looking for a man connected to a fatal shooting Wednesday morning.

 

Investigators say that around 8:35 Joseph Price shot two women inside a home near Fogerty Park in University City. Both women were taken to the hospital, where one of them died.

Price is known to drive a 1984 blue Chevrolet pick-up truck with Missouri license plate O-F-T-1-9-7. Police say Price should be considered armed and dangerous.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The debate over legalization of marijuana will be the subject of an open forum in St. Louis later this month.
 
Three members of the St. Louis Board of Aldermen are hosting the forum the evening of March 24 at Harris-Stowe State University. The panel discussion will address the disproportionate number of marijuana arrests for African-Americans, the safety of the drug, and whether a marijuana tax would benefit government revenues.
 
Organizers say panelists will include people on both sides of the debate, including representatives from law enforcement and from a pro-marijuana organization.
