JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Two north Florida businessmen have been sentenced for the roles in a kickback scheme that landed the state’s former corrections chief in prison. The U.S. Department of Justice reported Tuesday that 65-year-old Edward Lee Dugger was sentenced to more than two years in prison and 38-year-old Joseph Deese received a prison sentence of just over a year. The two men were convicted of funneling more than $130,000 to former Department of Corrections chief James Crosby and former DOC official Allen Clark in order to be subcontractors in operating a profitable prison canteen service. Crosby is serving eight years in prison for taking kickbacks. Clark was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison.
