A co-defendant in the case, St. Louis mortgage broker John Mineo Jr., will also be waiving an indictment, at 11:30 a.m., and pleading guilty to similar charges, in front of District Court Judge Richard Webber.

Riverfront Times last reported in May on the ongoing investigation of Irons.

We'll post more as soon as court documents become public record.
