Peru fire suspect makes juvenile court appearance

Posted by wlpo on January 3, 2012

At least another two weeks in the county detention home for a boy accused of starting the fire at Westclox in Peru.  The 15 year old from Peru went before Judge Dan Bute in juvenile court Tuesday.  He’s charged with the class x felony, aggravated arson.

A temporary detention order was issued requiring the boy remain in the detention home until at least his next court appearance January 17.

If found guilty the boy could be held in a juvenile lockup until he’s 21 years old.

17 year old Steven Gallacher of La Salle has been charged as an adult.  He’ll be in court Thursday.
