Columbus man sentenced to 63 months in prison for wire fraud

A Columbus man has been sentenced to 63 months in prison after pleading guilty in federal court in Detroit to defrauding his employer of more than $4.5 million.

David Hudson, 56, pleaded guilty in 2020 to a single count of wire fraud, and was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Court Judge Arthur J. Tarnow of the Eastern District of Michigan.

Hudson faced up to 20 years in prison, but prosecutors recommended 51 to 63 months plus restitution under a plea agreement.
