Steve Stenger's Moneyman John Rallo Asks for Coronavirus Release From Prison

The man who bribed former St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger wants out of federal prison, because he says the coronavirus puts him at risk.

John Rallo is just seventeen days into his seventeen-month sentence after pleading guilty a year ago to three counts of theft of honest services/bribery. Since his plea, he has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and has had surgery to remove his thyroid, his attorney writes in a court filing.

In a May 21 letter to the warden of the federal penitentiary in Marion, Illinois, the 54-year-old Rallo pleaded to be allowed to serve his sentence on home confinement because his health is failing.

"As such, I am among those with the highest risk of death or serious illness from COVID-19," he writes. "Yet, as an incarcerated person, it is impossible for me to follow the CDC's recommendations to protect myself and others from exposure to this highly transmissible disease."
