Christopher A. Seemayer will also have to pay a fine of $2,000 and make restitution of $15,383 to the city. He pleaded guilty in June to two counts of federal program theft for taking cash advances on the city of Brentwood credit card to use while gambling at the Casino Queen in East St. Louis. The city, unaware of Seemayer's actions, paid the bills with city funds.
After tomorrow morning, drivers who frequent the intersection of Ladue Rd. and Route 141 will have to find a new way to get to work.
