Barr petitioned to get his bail reduced. He was denied. It also looks like the State wants to know the source of bail money – if any is posted. There will be more on this story pertaining to McLean County.

Barr has a record here too, but he was sued civilly instead of prosecuted. The 2018 case states damages in excess of $50,000, but it’s hard to tell for what : (from the County website)
The question is why was he never held criminally liable. Does Barr have other local victims?
Epiphany Catholic School didn’t want to prosecute?
I wonder how many recovered any money by suing civilly? If Barr would have been criminally prosecuted would he have been able to move on to Joliet?
If you know other victims, I bet they can find him in Joliet now!
