Stenger Gets Nearly 4 Years In Prison For Corruption Scheme

Former St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger has been sentenced to nearly four years in federal prison for steering county business to a campaign donor in exchange for thousands of dollars in contributions.

The 46-month sentence Friday from U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry is at the maximum end of federal guidelines for Stenger’s crimes, in line with what prosecutors requested. He was also ordered to pay a $250,000 fine and will be on probation for three years after serving his sentence.

Prosecutors had argued that Stenger’s criminal conduct abused voters’ trust in a “substantial and harmful way,” while his attorneys countered that Stenger was remorseful. They pointed to his quick resignation and guilty plea.

Stenger will report to prison on Sept. 21, a date he requested so he could be present for the birth of his third child. The baby is due Sept. 13.
