One of the two men who escaped from prison and shot at local police officers two decades ago has lost an appeal of his sentence, though he was released from prison more than three months ago.
Ronnie Hudson, 50, filed a motion on his own behalf in May 2008 asking that his 25-year prison sentence be voided. Senior Status Circuit Court Judge Doughlas M. George denied that motion.
In August 2008, Hudson appealed George's ruling to the Kentucky Court of Appeals. In an opinion issued last week, the Court of Appeals denied the request, even though Hudson is no longer in prison.
