Sandoval woman sentenced for sex crimes

MARION COUNTY, IL — A 24-year-old Sandoval woman was sentenced Tuesday to 6-years in prison after she admitted to violating sex offender probation. Dallas Holt was originally sentenced in 2017 to 4-years sex offender probation after pleading guilty in Marion County Court to two of the 10 felony child sex crime charges against her.

She was sentenced Tuesday to 6-years on each count to be served concurrently in the Illinois Department of Corrections, followed by 2-years mandatory supervised release. In October 2016, Holt and her mother Patricia Speagle were arrested along with her step-father Gary Speagle on multiple charges each of child sex offenses.

Patricia and Gary Speagle ultimately pleaded guilty to a portion of the charges they each faced. They were each sentenced to 110 years in prison. Holt was originally charged with eight Class 1 felony sex offenses, on Class X, and one Class 2 felony. She pleaded guilty in October 2017 to two amended counts Class 2 felony aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a family member under the age of 18.

Holt is due back in Marion County Court April 20 for sentencing in a 2020 case charging her with two Class 2 felony offenses of violating the sex offender registry.
