St. Louis Metropolitan Police Kevin Shade has pleaded guilty to mail fraud in connection with falsifying inspections for S & H Parking Systems, Acting United States Attorney Michael W. Reap announced today.

According to the facts filed with the court, between October 2004 and August 2008, St. Louis Metropolitan Police Detective Kevin 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.

“When it comes to fighting crime, the FBI places top priority on investigating public corruption,” said John V. Gillies, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in St. Louis. “In order to have law and order in our society, honesty must begin with the men and women who are entrusted to serve and protect. Unfortunately on occasion, there are those who sell out the people’s trust and we will hold them accountable.”

Shade, 35, St. Louis, MO, 63111, pleaded guilty to one felony count of mail fraud. He appeared before United States District Judge Rodney W. Sippel.

He now faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and/or fines up to $250,000, when he is sentenced on October 29, 2009.

Reap commended the work on the case by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, United States Postal Inspection Service, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, and Assistant United States Attorneys Hal Goldsmith and Jeffrey Jensen, who are handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
