Arson Case Delayed For Westclox Teen

Posted by wlpo on April 27, 2012

The potential trial for a teen accused of setting Westclox on fire has been pushed back.

During a hearing yesterday, lawyers said that 17-year old Steven Gallacher of La Salle is looking for a private attorney instead of having the public defender.  So a May 21st trial date is scratched and Gallacher’s next hearing isn’t until May 31st.

Gallacher is accused of going into Westclox New Year’s Eve night and setting the middle building ablaze.  A 15-year old teen from Peru was charged along with him.  He’s since pled guilty to arson and was given probation and community service.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
