HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – One of the four suspects arrested in March 2016 after two 4-year-old children told police they were sexually assaulted at multiple Horry County locations, including former Myrtle Beach gentlemen's club Chez Joey, has bonded out of jail.

According to officials at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center booking office, 57-year-old Panteleimon "Peter" Spirakis was released from jail shortly before 3 p.m. Monday.

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.

According to information from the 15th Circuit Solicitor's Office, Spirakis' case is set for trial in August.

Honeycutt and Strickland were both previously released to home detention. Online jail records state Heavener remains in jail under a $150,000 bond.
