ST. LOUIS (AP) - Sentencing is scheduled for April for a St. Louis health inspector who has admitted in federal court that he accepted a bribe from a grocery store owner in connection with his job.

Fifty-year-old Kevin Huntspon of St. Louis pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony bribery county.

Huntspon admitted that a year ago, he accepted $200 in cash from the unnamed grocer.

Hired by the city in 2004, Huntspon was placed on forced leave after he was charged. He faced a termination hearing, though it wasn't immediately clear Tuesday if he's still employed by the city.

He faces up to a decade in prison when sentenced April 5.
