Crestwood Mayor Resigns, Pleads Guilty In Red-Light Camera Bribery Case

The longtime mayor of suburban Crestwood is facing time in federal prison after pleading guilty in a red-light camera bribery case. Louis Presta resigned as mayor Tuesday night before pleading guilty yesterday to charges that accuse him of taking an envelope stuffed with cash from a representative of SafeSpeed, a red-light camera company that does business in his town. Presta was first elected mayor in 2013.
