FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Wesley Bell, who is the municipal court judge in Velda City, and the prosecutor in Riverview, was elected to the Ferguson City Council Tuesday night.

The Ferguson Municipal Court has been criticized for being a revenue raising body for the city. Many have described Velda City as a speed trap where tickets are used to raise revenue.

Bell insists he is fair and says he has not never been asked to bring in increased revenue.
