Soulard residents needed at hearing

The SRG Safety Committee needs Soulard residents to attend a sentencing hearing at 9 a.m. on Friday, June 5 (ending time is uncertain). The case is State v. Anthony Swift, Case No. 1322-CR06073.
The defendant pleaded guilty to an armed robbery that occurred in November 2013 on South 11th Street near Russell Boulevard. One of the victims was a Soulard resident.
It is critical that we have residents at the sentencing to represent the neighborhood and to show support for the victims. From our experience, it definitely makes a difference to have residents present.
If you are able to attend on Friday, please email us at or send me a private message with your email address. I’ll send additional logistical details regarding the hearing to everybody who RSVPs.
