CHICAGO (AP) - Prosecutors have described Kevin Trudeau as an "uncontrollable huckster" in urging a federal judge to imprison the TV pitchman for at least 10 years for bilking consumers through widely aired infomercials.
 
In a court filing in Chicago this week, they blast Trudeau as "an unrepentant, untiring and uncontrollable huckster." They add the 50-year-old is even likely to cheat fellow inmates. Sentencing is March 17.
 
Jurors convicted Trudeau of criminal contempt in November for violating a judge's order barring him from making false claims about his book, "The Weight Loss Cure They Don't Want You to Know About."
 
Prosecutors say Trudeau has not only refused to pay a $37 million judgment in a related civil case but bragged about his defiance.
 
Trudeau attorney Kimball Anderson didn't return a message seeking comment.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Lottery sales rose to another record high during the 2013 budget year.

   The Lottery says it sold $1.14 billion of tickets during the fiscal year that ended June 30. That's up 4 percent from the previous year's total of $1.1 billion.

   Lottery sales have set new high marks each of the past three years.

   Executive Director May Scheve Reardon attributes the increased sales to a new advertising campaign and several large Powerball jackpots. She also cites the beginning of a new loyalty program and strong sales in several other Lottery games.

   The Lottery awarded more than $1 billion of prizes and transferred $289 million to education last year.
