MADISON – A Seth man was sentenced to the Anthony Correctional Center last week after pleading guilty in Boone County Circuit Court on July 9 to the felony offenses of breaking and entering and conspiracy.
Jeremy A. Hudson, 24, of Charles Drive in Seth, was sentenced on Aug. 20 to six months to 24 months in the Anthony Correctional Center. The Anthony Center is a Division of Corrections facility designed to house youthful offenders.

Once Frye had the money, he traveled to another residence then returned with the Opana and gave it to the drug user.
