Westclox Trial Delayed Again

Posted by wlpo on June 21, 2012

If you were hoping for quick justice in the Westclox arson trial, you’re probably disappointed.

The trial of 17-year old Steven Gallacher of La Salle has been delayed again.  Instead of starting Monday, the trial date’s now August 27th.  The delay isn’t surprising since Louis Bertrand just became Gallacher’s lawyer late last month.

Gallacher has been in the La Salle County Jail since he was arrested January 1st, just a few hours into the Westclox fire.  A 15-year old boy from Peru already pled guilty to starting the fire and was given probation and community service.
