ST. LOUIS (AP) — A 52-year-old has pleaded guilty to fraudulently obtaining millions of dollars in loans from a suburban St. Louis bank.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Michael Filmore of Chesterfield entered the plea Friday in federal court. Filmore admitted through his plea that he lied about the destination of the money and falsified a brokerage account statement claiming $5.5 million to back up a $1 million line of credit.

Filmore told Pulaski Bank that the loans would be used to broker and lease medical equipment. Many of the loans were in the name of his business, Healthcare Partners Group LLC.

According to court testimony, Filmore obtained more than $6 million through fraud and still owes more than $5 million.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Missourians who live in rural areas are far less likely to have health insurance than those living near big cities, according to U.S. Census data.

The Associated Press examined county-by-county data for 2011, the most recent year available.

The numbers show the uphill climb facing President Barack Obama's health care overhaul in Missouri, which opted against setting up its own exchange and instead allowed the federal government to run it.

Missouri overall ranks right in the middle of the nation in the percentage of uninsured residents under age 65 — tied with Washington state at 25th with 16 percent uninsured. But in 34 of Missouri's 115 counties, one-fifth to one-quarter of non-senior residents lack health insurance. Twenty-seven of those 34 counties have fewer than 25,000 residents.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — A suburban St. Louis woman will spend two days in jail for accidentally dragging her pit bull down Interstate 70.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 34-year-old Amy Taylor of Bridgeton was sentenced to the shock time in jail on Friday and ordered to pay veterinary bills for the 2-year-old dog, Coco. She pleaded guilty Monday to one count of misdemeanor animal abuse.

The dog was dragged for about a mile on May 22nd in St. Charles County. Authorities say Taylor put the dog in an unsecured kennel in the back of her pickup and failed to remove his leash. Somehow the dog got out of the kennel but the leash hung up on the tailgate.

Coco was badly hurt but survived.
