?Kevin Shade, a former detective with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, was sentenced yesterday to 27 months in prison for his role in the towing scandal that rocked the department back in 2008.
According to the indictment the 36-year-old Shade
passed vehicles for inspection despite obvious flaws, and then signed Vehicle Examination Certificates falsely stating there was no apparent damage or only slight damage to the vehicles.
In exchange for performing these and other faulty inspections, Detective Shade received cash payments from an employee of S & H Parking Systems.
