Third defendant pleads guilty


A third defendant pleaded guilty Monday in a case involving an industrial explosion at a site leased from the Louisiana National Guard, and agreed to repay $149,000 to the federal government.

Kenneth Lampkin was program manager for Explo Systems LLC, which abandoned 7,800 tons (7,100 metric tons) of potentially explosive artillery propellant at Camp Minden when it went bankrupt in 2013.

He pleaded guilty Monday to making a false statement, according to online documents from the U.S. District Court in Shreveport. If Judge Elizabeth Foote agrees to prosecutors’ recommendations, he would repay less than 2 percent of the $8.7 million Army contract
