(via St. Louis County)

Back in April we told you that former St. Louis County Planning Commission chair, Douglas Morgan, 65, from Chesterfield, had been indicted on a charge of federal bank fraud.

With that charge, Morgan could face a maximum penalty of up to 30 years in prison and/or fines up to $1,000,000 if convicted.

Today, the Eastern District of Missouri division of the U.S. Attorney's Office said in a release that Morgan now faces an additional charge: wire fraud.
