A commissioned Farber police officer will learn his fate in court on Tuesday, August 1 as he starts a jury trial in St. Charles County after being charged with a crime in December 2016.
According to, officer Brandon Bumbales was charged with patronizing prostitution on December 4 after being arrested by the Foristell Police Department.
Bumbales will be represented by Attorney Travis Noble during the trial. His trial starts at 8:30 a.m. and is presided by Judge Daniel G. Pelikan.
Several City of Farber officials are aware of Bumbales’ upcoming case.
It was not confirmed by press time if the officer had represented the city since being charged in December. He did recently attend an open City of Farber board meeting and his attendance was noted in the meeting minutes.
Brandon Bumbales is the son of current Farber Police Chief Raymond Bumbales.
As noted in some public records, persons arrested for criminal offenses are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
