Tilley hearing on traffic charge reset to April 23

The next hearing on former Speaker of the House, now lobbyist, Steve Tilley's traffic charge is scheduled for 9 a.m. April 23, in St. Louis County Circuit Court.

Tilley is charged with exceeding the posted speeding limit by 20 to 25 miles per hour, a misdemeanor charge. The traffic stop was made by Missouri Highway Patrol.
The case was sent to circuit court after Tilley pleaded not guilty December 20 in the traffic fine court to the charge, according to online court records.

This is the third traffic violation for Tilley in the past 10 years, according to online records. On two earlier occasions in St. Genevieve County, once in 2003 and the other time in 2006, Tilley pleaded guilty to "operating a motor vehicle which emitted excessive and unnecessary noise," and paid fines. One stop was made by the Highway Patrol, the other by the Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff's Office.
