ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Former St. Louis Alderman Jeffrey Boyd and former Aldermanic President Lewis Reed have pleaded guilty to corruption charges.

Both were indicted in May along with former 21st Ward Alderman John Collins-Muhammad. They are all accused of getting substantial and numerous cash payments in exchange for political favors and land deals.

Earlier in August, News 4 learned that Boyd and Reed had each filed a motion to change their plea. Collins-Muhammed pleaded guilty earlier this week.

Boyd was elected 22nd Ward Alderman in 2003. He resigned shortly after the federal indictment was unsealed. Both Collins-Muhammed and Reed also resigned.
