ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former St. Louis mayor is accused of mishandling clients' funds through his law firm.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Freeman Bosley Jr. is facing disciplinary action from the Missouri Supreme Court.

A complaint was filed with the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel in June but just made public. The counsel investigates allegations of misconduct by lawyers.

Bosley was St. Louis' first black mayor, elected in 1993. He lost a 1997 re-election bid and went into private law practice.

Bosley's attorney, Michael Downey, says the allegations involve money-management issues related to the trust account of Bosley's firm. He says Bosley accepts responsibility for the mistakes, but says none of Bosley's clients were deprived of any money due to them.
