An investigation by the Alabama Department of industrial Relations Benefit Payment Control Section determined Hudson received a total of $1,656 in unemployment benefits to which she was not entitled. Hudson was sentenced to 12 moths in the Escambia County Jail by Escambia County District Court Judge J. David Jordan on Aug. 7. That sentence was suspended with Hudson being placed on two years probation. She was also required to repay the amount of illegal benefits received, plus court costs.
