“A former Galesburg woman has admitted to essentially destroying evidence in connection to a felony sex case her boyfriend was convicted of earlier this year.
27-year-old Angel Holloway pleaded guilty in Knox County Circuit Court this morning to a Class-Four felony charge of Obstructing Justice, and a Class-A Misdemeanor charge of Child Endangerment. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to dismiss five other similar misdemeanors.
Holloway was arrested last year, after prosecutors say she destroyed a letter written by her now-10-year-old daughter accusing 28-year-old Calvin Williams of having sexual contact with her.
Williams was convicted in March by a judge of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault and Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse, and will be sentenced September 18th.
Meantime, Holloway will be sentenced November 14th. A sentence was not part of a plea agreement — meaning Holloway could still face as much as three-years in prison on the Obstruction of Justice Charge, and as much as 364 days in jail on the Child Endangerment charge.
Prosecutors claim Holloway didn’t initially report the abuse to the Department of Children and Family Services, and that she told investigators the letter didn’t say anything about abuse.
