Stenger's Former Right-Hand Man Gets 15 Months In Prison For His Role In Pay-To-Play Scheme

William Miller, the chief of staff to disgraced former St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger, was sentenced Friday to 15 months behind bars for working to make sure that a campaign donor to Stenger got a lobbying contract.

Miller pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting bribery, a felony, in May. The sentence handed down Friday by U.S. District Judge Rodney Sippel was at the low end of federal sentencing guidelines for the crime and in line with what prosecutors had sought. The maximum under the guidelines was 21 months. Millerís attorneys wanted probation.

Miller will report to prison at a later date. In addition to the prison term, he will be on supervised release for three years. He has already surrendered his law license.

Sippel did not fine Miller, saying he did not consider it appropriate because of Millerís family obligations and the fact he will not be employed for more than a year. But he declined Millerís request for probation.
