ST. JOHNS - A former member of the St. Johns City Commission and prominent member of the Clinton County Chamber of Commerce is sentenced to prinson time for embezzlement. David Hudgens was given a 3 1/3 to 20 years sentence Monday morning in Clinton County Circuit Court. Hudgens pleaded guilty last November to embezzling over $260,000 from his employer, Osgood Funeral Home in St. Johns, over a six year period.

The embezzlement was discovered in April of 2013 by the funeral home's new owners. They saw that Hudgens was taking money from pre-paid funeral accounts. The owners of the funeral home say they will honor the terms of the pre-paid accounts.

Hudgens has remained jailed since his initial arrest, and has 266 credit for time served. He was ordered to pay $260,663 in restitution. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
