A man from Kampsville won't see any jail time for his crimes in McClean County, although he is still charged with similar crimes in Calhoun County and Dunklin County, Missouri. 58-year-old Michael "Mike" Dean pleaded guilty July 28 to attempted criminal sexual abuse of a victim who was unable to consent and delivery of a controlled substance. The state dismissed five other drug offenses.
He has been sentenced to two terms of probation for 24 and 30 months in return for his guilty plea. The charges stem from an incident at a Normal, Il motel in 2014 in which an intoxicated man claimed Dean had tried to sexually assault him after the two had been drinking. Police in Normal are said to have confiscated a bag belonging to Dean containing a large amount of prescription drugs as well as GHB, commonly known as the "date rape" drug. Dean still faces charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Calhoun County and sodomy and kidnapping charges in Dunklin County, Missouri, connected to alleged incidents with two men in 2011 and 2012. The Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in Dunklin County, Missouri has previously said those crimes in Missouri are punishable by up to life in prison.
