Ex-Kinloch Mayor Gets Six Months in Prison
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The former mayor of the St. Louis County town of Kinloch has been sentenced to six months in prison for lying about having a job so he could get out of the halfway house where he was staying.
Keith Conway was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court. He pleaded guilty in September to four federal felony counts of filing false documents.
Conway was sentenced in November 2011 to 21 months in prison after pleading guilty to wire fraud, theft from a federal program and witness tampering. He was ordered to repay more than $62,000 to the city.
Prosecutors say he was transferred May 1 from prison to a St. Louis halfway house and was supposed to be working, but instead lied and submitted fake pay stubs.
