Wesley Bell. St. Louis County Circuit Attorney

Mr Bell won a surprising election to become Circuit Attorney. The public wanted a change relative to prosecution and policing relative to the racial problems coming out of Ferguson

So far Mr Bell has a rocky start. He is firing three prosecutors, one of whom prosecuted the Michael Brown case. Is this retribution? He is recommending lessening the prosecution of unpaid child support. He is hiring a controversial prosecutor who was a divisive figure for Kim Gardner, Circuit Attorney in St Louis. On the positive side he is ending cash bail for non violent crime. (This may not be a change). Stay tuned!
