City Corrections Commissioner suspended hours before jail break

Hours before an inmate escaped from a St. Louis jail on Friday night, the city's corrections commissioner was suspended because of complaints about his management of city jail facilities. Commissioner Gene Stubblefield will be able to defend his performance in several hearings and meetings. The city emphasized that no one is alleging any criminal misconduct.
