St. Louis County Council May Block Pensions For Officials Convicted Of Felonies

The St. Louis County Council is looking into eliminating pensions for county officials who commit a felony.

The proposal came from Councilman Tim Fitch, R- St. Louis County, who said it would apply to those who pleaded or are found guilty of a felony while in office.

The proposal comes a few weeks after former County Executive Steve Stenger pleaded guilty to federal public corruption charges. He resigned as county executive in late April. Fitch said the proposed legislation could affect Stenger’s pension.

“I do believe that it’s wrong for someone to be convicted of a felony, of multiple felonies, while serving an elected office and then be able to at some point collect their pension,” Fitch said.
