Former St. Louis health inspector gets probation for taking bribe

{{featured_button_text}}

ST. LOUIS • A former St. Louis health inspector was sentenced Wednesday to two years of probation on a felony bribery charge.

Kevin Huntspon, 51, of St. Louis was indicted in October and accused of accepting $200 cash on Jan. 6, 2015.

He pleaded guilty to the charge in January 2016, admitting that he'd met with a St. Louis grocery store owner and solicited and accepted a $200 bribe “in exchange for clean inspections and intending to be influenced and rewarded in connection with his duties,” his plea says.

Huntspon was hired in 2004 and was listed as a food establishment inspector in city records. He was placed on forced leave after his arrest and no longer works for the department. 

The department also reinspected Huntspon's assigned establishments.
