Former Attorney now convicted sex offender Gary Peel is not in the Illinois Sex Offender database nor is he in the IL. Dept of Corrections Inmate Search database. I wonder why.
Is he a federal prisoner?
Now this idiot, Thomas Lakin will get off (pardon the pun) because he said he is broke. I think he sold his business to his son for a song. At any rate, doesn't he own a mansion in Malibu California?
I say they take him up north to Placerville, California and do to him what they are famous for....

gary peel was a good lawyer who couldn't give the feds any information on any madison county judge or otherwise powerful figure. his sentence is an outrageous injustice. He didn't deserve one day in prison for no more than what he did. He is in the custody of the federal prison in kentucky.

Are you kidding me? You are an freakin' IDIOT if you support someone who took nude photos of a minor.
The secondary problem is that he tried to blackmail his wife with them.
He is trash and anyone who supports what he has done should sit beside him.
It does NOT matter how good of a lawyer he is, it matters how bad of a child porn photogrpher he was.

Lakin has been a perv for years. He use to troll Jersey county High School in the 80's looking for 14 yr olds. He should be locked away. but he wont be, cuz he has money. Thats how the area we all live in works. Who doesn't know that by now?

Regardless of the impropriety of Mr. Peel's actions, what he did was not illegal. The District Court erred in its judgment because under the laws in effect in effect at the time of the "offense," the "victim" was of legal age. The legal age in 1974 when the event occurred was 16. It was changed to 18 in 1984. Mr Peel has an appeal filed and it was heard by the 7th District Court of Appeals on 12/10/09. I expect his conviction to be overturned within the next few months.

What are the laws on blackmail back in 1984?
What were the laws on possesion of child porn back when he was caught with the photos?
It not only has a bearing on when the photos were taken, it's when he possesed them.
I don't expect his conviction to be overturned. If it is, I expect more charges to be brought against him.

true but the reason he was arrested was because he had the photos now which makes it illegal. he did not not get charged for any type a rape just cuz he had pictures now

He possessed photos of an underage girl..NUDE.
That's considered child porn.
Child porn is a sex crime.
An offender should be in the Illinois Sex Offender database.
Why isn't this man in this database?
How does he differ from the other prisoners?

The Gary Peel story is bad rap. The legal age of consent was 16 at the time the pics. were taken. There was no sex involved. From what I have been able to determine..only nude pics of the girl. I don't have any interst in this at all except it seems like somebody in power did not like this lawyer...I don't like lawyers either, I think they are all crooks but..I also believe that all sex offenders should be supervised whole life.I just thinkl this sounds like a R.R job

OK....I re-read it...he did have a sexual relationship with her but she was of legal age in 1974. Oh well it doesnt matter to me. I realize most people in jail are guilty of something. I just hate to see anyone get a raw deal. Let God be his judge!

Possession of photographs of a nude minor, and extortion, are crimes. What the hell is wrong with you people who are defending this guy. "Gary Peel was a good lawyer" "The Gary Peel story is bad rap"
(sic). Are you guys this messed up in your thinking? This man is a criminal and he needs to go to jail. Anybody who has sex with his wife's minor sister when he was in his early thirties is not a "good" anything. And then keeps photos of the minor he abused to jerk off to for the next thirty years. And this is only the stuff he got caught doing. His life is finished and we are all well rid of him. "Good lawyer" my ass.

Well, it looks like Mr. Peel is going back to prison to serve out the twelve years he justly deserves to spend there. Yup, he'll be about 79 when he gets out-if he doesn't die there. I think I write for a lot of people when I say he has had this coming to him for years. Mr. Peel is not typical of lawyers. He is a disgrace to his profession and a degenerate. Hasta Gary!

Pedophiles should be drug into the street to have their hands, elbows and knees shattered before being castrated and having one put in the back of their head. Then you should drag them out front on trash day to be picked up with the rest of the garbage.
Any sympethizers and apologists should be made to watch the ordeal with their mouths taped shut so I don't have listen to them whining.
You think your "treatment" works? I work in the system. It doesn't. Recidivism rates and parole violation rates for these guys suck. Anyone that doesn't think the only way they'll stop is if they're dead should be locked up with them for being a detriment to the safety and welfare of the children of this country.

Yup, I agree. Peddies need to be put away forever, one way or the other. I don't think they should be tortured before they are executed or imprisoned for life, but they should definitely be removed from the objects of their obsessions. I've known a few guys who work in the system. And they all pretty much agree that this "treatment" stuff doesn't work on violent men and sexual perverts. And it always seems like it is creampuffs who don't have to live near these assholes who are the ones who still tout this bullshit about rehabilitation. You don't rehab guys who like to diddle little kids, you cage them. I know this is off the main topic somewhat. I just enjoyed the previous comment.
