Edwards' girlfriend, Christina Ann Gillette, was also sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison and one year of supervised release
Prior to Edwards and Gillette's release in May of 2010, agents had gathered intelligence that the former Klan leader trafficked meth and lortab pills in Dawson Springs, Central City and Bardstown between January 2009 and January 2010.
Edwards and Gillette will surrender themselves to the courts to serve out their prison sentences at a later date.
