Former judge's daughter strikes basketball star; Misdemeanor ticket issued

By The Madison County Record | Jul 24, 2014


Katherine O’Malley, daughter of former judge Michael O’Malley and friend of drug dealer Sean McGilvery, struck basketball star Kevin Lisch with her car on July 5.

Images of O'Malley's vehicle broadcast on a Fox 2 News segment Wednesday show the passenger side windshield shattered and partially caved in.

Deputy sheriff Adam Quirin ticketed O'Malley on Country Club Place in Belleville for failure to reduce speed, an offense that carries a $120 fine.

According to Quirin's accident report, O’Malley “was looking at a house that had some construction done to it recently.”

Quirin’s report gives Lisch's address as 206 Country Club Lane, the home of his parents.

His parents, former professional football player Rusty Lisch and Catherine, said on July 22 that they would not talk about the accident on advice of legal counsel.

Fox 2 reporter Chris Hayes stated in his report that he talked to a witness off camera who said Lisch was walking with his family, including a baby in a stroller, when he was struck from behind.

The police report does not include those details.

Sheriff Rick Watson said Wednesday that Quirin was on vacation and that he would not be contacting him during that time. Watson said Quirin would be available for comment on Monday.

At age 28, Lisch recently signed a contract to play this coming season in Spain.

An Althoff Catholic High School graduate, Lisch played basketball at St. Louis University from 2005-2009, where he was a prolific scorer and team leader. He was undrafted in the 2009 NBA draft, but has played professionally overseas since then. Last season, he signed with JSF Nanterre in France.

On June 14, he signed with CAI Zaragoza in Spain of the Liga ACB. He is married and has a seven month old son.

O'Malley, 33, has faced 49 traffic tickets in St. Clair County.

She had faced felony drug distribution charges in St. Clair County in 2012, as partner of heroin dealer Sean McGilvery.

Her case was dismissed and her record expunged.

McGilvery pleaded guilty in federal court last year to a charge that he supplied heroin to former judge Michael Cook.
