Anderson pleads guilty, is sentenced in Opelousas Housing Authority scandal

Duson businessman Kendall Anderson, the third individual charged in the Opelousas Housing Authority (OHA) scandal, pleaded guilty to misprision of a felony, specifically for failing to report a scheme to send housing authority contracts to his own company, Anderson Iron Works.

Anderson was sentence Thursday to a single year of probation as a result of an investigation into a bid-rigging probe at OHA.

Former OHA Director Walter O. Guillory and Garnette L. Thomas, former grant and capital funds coordinator for the housing authority, had previously pleaded guilty and were sentenced.

Thomas had received only two years probation in July, but Guillory was sentenced to two years, four months in prison.
