Teen Admits To Starting Westclox Fire

Posted by wlpo on January 24, 2012

One of the teens arrested for setting the old Westclox on fire has pled guilty.

The 15-year old boy from Peru charged in the fire pled guilty this morning to aggravated arson.  He’ll be sentenced in La Salle County Juvenile Court March 6th.

17-year old Steven Gallacher of La Salle is looking at a March 5th trial date for his alleged role in the New Year’s Eve fire.  Gallacher is being tried as an adult and faces prison time.  The 15-year old is being tried as a minor so he will avoid prison time.
