ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — Former St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger has received the official order from the court to report to prison.

U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri

In a letter to Stenger from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, Stenger is ordered to surrender to authorities at the FPC — Yankton, the federal prison camp in Yankton, S.D., by 1 p.m. Sept. 21.

Yankton is a minimum-security federal prison for male inmates. Stenger resigned in April after being federally indicted on honest services bribery and mail fraud charges.

Stenger asked the court at his sentencing if he could delay reporting to prison until after the birth of his third child, due in mid-September. Yankton was also one of two prisons requested by Stenger's team. Stenger was apparently concerned about being in prison with former clients.

Stenger was a practicing attorney before his legal troubles caught up to him.
