St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Art McCoy is out as the superintendent of the Ferguson-Florissant School District.

 

The School Board and McCoy released a joint statement Wednesday afternoon saying that he was resigning from his position, effective immediately. The brief statement said the decision was mutual and that the "full resolution of these matters is in the best interests of the Ferguson-Florissant School District".

 

Not much is known about the trouble between McCoy and the School Board. In November, board members voted 6-1 to place him on paid administrative leave. 

Feds seek 10-year term for TV pitchman Trudeau

Wednesday, 12 March 2014 16:24 Published in National News
CHICAGO (AP) - Prosecutors have described Kevin Trudeau as an "uncontrollable huckster" in urging a federal judge to imprison the TV pitchman for at least 10 years for bilking consumers through widely aired infomercials.
 
In a court filing in Chicago this week, they blast Trudeau as "an unrepentant, untiring and uncontrollable huckster." They add the 50-year-old is even likely to cheat fellow inmates. Sentencing is March 17.
 
Jurors convicted Trudeau of criminal contempt in November for violating a judge's order barring him from making false claims about his book, "The Weight Loss Cure They Don't Want You to Know About."
 
Prosecutors say Trudeau has not only refused to pay a $37 million judgment in a related civil case but bragged about his defiance.
 
Trudeau attorney Kimball Anderson didn't return a message seeking comment.
