Junction City Man In Child Sexual Assault Case Goes To Court Monday

(SALEM, IL) — A 47-year-old Junction City man whose wife was sentenced last week to 110 years in prison for sexually assaulting their children is due in Marion County court Monday for a pre-trial on related charges. Gary Speagle is facing 10 Class X felony charges of child pornography of a victim under the age of 13, and four counts Class X predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13. His wife, Patricia Speagle was sentenced last week to 110 years in prison after she earlier pleaded guilty to four Class X charges of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child under the age of 13 and three counts Class 1 felony criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13. Patricia Speagle’s adult daughter Dallas Holt is also facing related felony charges stemming from an investigation into the family that began in October 2016 after pornographic pictures were allegedly found on Gary Speagle’s computer by a man who had agreed to try and repair it. Holt is charged with seven counts Class X predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13, and three counts Class 1 criminal sexual assault of a family member under the age of 18. She’s due in court next week for a pre-trial hearing on those charges. A 16-year-old juvenile male in the case also faces charges related to victimizing the 10-year-old female victim in the case.
