Hearing in federal court on Tuesday for three defendants in the STL corruption case

ST. LOUIS — Three former St. Louis aldermen who recently resigned will appear in federal court Tuesday afternoon.

ex tax Louis Aldermen President Lewis Reed and former aldermen Jeffrey Boyd and John Collins-Muhammad were indicted last month on federal bribery and corruption charges related to pay-to-play schemes.

Federal investigators say the former councilors took cash to secure tax breaks for a business developer. The Feds say they have hundreds of recorded phone calls and thousands of text messages. All three former councilors have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The board is looking for a replacement for Reed. Joe Vollmer, the vice president of the board, became acting president immediately after Reed’s resignation. He is serving on a temporary basis until voters elect a successor in the November 8 general election.

A status hearing on the case has been scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Scott Rosenblum appeared on behalf of Reed Tuesday afternoon. The next court hearing in the federal case is scheduled for July 25.
