HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The attorney for one of the four suspects arrested last March after two 4-year-old children told police they were sexually assaulted at multiple Horry County locations, including a former Myrtle Beach gentlemen’s club, has filed a motion asking the court to set bond for his client.

According to Horry County court documents, the attorney for Panteleimon “Peter” Spirakis noted that, within 10 days, he will move before the court for an order setting bond for his client, who was arrested March 3, 2016.

Spirakis has not had a bond hearing since his arrest, the court documents stated.

Additionally, he has not had additional warrants served, and is not a flight risk and presents no immediate threat to the public, according to the documents.

A hearing date has not yet been set. 

Spirakis is charged with two counts each of sexual exploitation of a minor, criminal sexual conduct with a minor, and engaging a child under 18 for sexual performance.

Lindsey Honeycutt, Ambrose Heavener and Anthony Strickland were also charged in connection with the case that put Spirakis in jail.

According to arrest warrants, all four suspects allegedly engaged in sex acts - including intercourse - with the two victims between December 2014 and April 2015.

Online records from the J. Reuben Long Detention Center stated both Heavener and Honeycutt remain in jail under no bond, while Strickland is out on home detention.
