Woman Ignores Child’s Plea For Help, Says She Would Lie For the Alleged Sexual Abuser

…and people wonder why victims don’t try and tell anyone.

The adult world is so self-absorbed, and into self-protection and denial...

“A Galesburg woman told attorneys Monday that she doesn’t believe a child who wrote a letter to her about being sexually abused.

Angel B. Holloway, 26, Chicago, has been charged with permitting sexual abuse of a child and six counts of endangering the life of a child. The first offense is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines.

Galesburg detective Todd Olinger testified Monday that Holloway had called the Department of Children and Family Services in early April after she heard from another person that Calvin J. Williams had been sexually abusing the victim. She relayed the incidents to officials at the Child Advocacy Center.

Olinger contacted Holloway on April 11 to discuss the alleged incidents. She said the victim had written her a letter in December stating that she had been sexually abused.

Holloway said she threw away the letter and does not believe the incident could have happened. She said there wasn’t an instance when Williams would have been alone with the victim.

Additionally, Holloway said she has not been given the opportunity to review evidence from the Child Advocacy Center.

Knox County Assistant State’s Attorney Elisa Tanner said Holloway admitted on videotape that she would lie in a courtroom for Williams. Holloway later said she would not lie in front of a judge or under oath.

Tanner also questioned why Holloway told officials she was blackmailed into calling DCFS. Holloway said she never said that.

Knox County Judge James Stewart determined there was enough probable cause to continue the case to trial.

He said Holloway’s statements were “all over the board” — when she first talked with police and Monday’s court hearing.

He also lowered Holloway’s bond from $100,000 to $25,000 Monday, meaning that she would need to pay $2,500 to post. He explained that she does not have a criminal history and will likely appear in court. The victim is in protective custody.

Stewart ordered that as part of Holloway’s bond, she cannot have any unsupervised contact with the victim.

Holloway’s next hearing is set for Thursday.

Williams, is scheduled to appear in court Monday. He had been charged with three counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and aggravated criminal sexual abuse.”

If the child was being sexually abused, I hope this woman does receive time in prison. It is a moral and legal crime to aid a child sexual abuser.

    A house can be fully occupied and a child can be raped/molested. My stepfather took advantage of my mother doing laundry or sleeping when he came into my room at night.

    I was told that no-one would believe me and if I did say anything that he would hurt my family. This woman needs to be punished.

    • little nel says:

      I was also told that no one would believe me and that he would say that I came on to him if I told. My father had an alibi for everything he did that was immoral or illegal.

      • Alethea says:

        My father told my mother, or implied, that I was the sexual aggressor. She happily believed him.

        • little nel says:

          It defies reason that child abuse is OK in the mind of the perp and his spouse if the child is “the aggressor.” (or whore).

          Where is the moral gage, ethical restraint, and accountability?

          It’s the all women are whores mindset… So they deserve to be raped in childhood because they asked for it? Sick, sick, sick.

          • little nel says:

            Everytime I think about a perp blaming the female child (like she is a consenual adult) for his sexual attraction to her and then acting on the impulse, I think about Adam and Eve. “It was the woman you gave me God. She gave me the (forbidden) fruit and I ate.” said Adam. (She came on to me. It was her idea.)

            God did not let Adam use that excuse. He made it clear that there was no excuse for that behavior, before he chastised him and banished him from the garden.

            The first governmental agency was instituted at that time with a powerful angel as the guardian of the new law. It has not changed.
