Steve Stenger, sentenced to 46 months in prison, is now due out after 27 months, prison says

ST. LOUIS — Former County Executive Steve Stenger, who reported to prison last month to serve a 46-month prison sentence, is scheduled to be released after just 27 months, according to the Bureau of Prisons.

The prison system’s inmate locator shows Stenger’s release date is Dec. 27, 2021.

Lawyers say the process by which prison officials calculate sentences is opaque and complicated. Officials declined to comment this week on questions about Stenger, citing privacy reasons. But they said inmates can shave up to 54 days a year off their sentence through “good conduct,” and can earn up to 12 months off by completing the intensive Residential Drug Abuse Program.

U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry had rejected defense lawyer Scott Rosenblum’s request for a recommendation to the program at Stenger’s sentencing hearing in August, saying that while there was evidence of alcohol use, there was no evidence of drug use.
