Accused child molester gets visitation and tMcLean County trial delay

A McLean County judge has agreed to delay a McLean County child abuse trial and to let accused former minister and substitue teacher James Love see his 14-year-old son for the first time in six months.

Defense Lawyer Steve Skelton asked for a trial delay until federal prosecutors move ahead with their child pornography case against Love. Skelton says he would want any prison term if there is a plea or guilty verdict on the federal level to run at the same time as the McLean County sentence. Love’s lawyer was also happy the judge agreed to supervised visits with Love’s teenage son which will occur through glass at the McLean County jail where Love is being held on $250-thousand dollars bond.

Prosecutor Michelle Brooks also revealed in court there are still other, unidentified victims in pornographic photos found during the investigation and she urges anyone with information to call police.

Love is accused in McLean County of sedating and molesting four boys at his home in Normal.
