Associate Division of Grundy County Circuit Court news for Tuesday, December 9, 2020

Court News

Among cases, Tuesday in the Associate Division of Grundy County Circuit Court, Galt resident Shandon Levi Gann, charged with first-degree assault on a Trenton man, appeared for a bond hearing before Special Judge Matthew Krohn from Princeton.

The court received evidence and heard arguments regarding setting a bond, and afterward, Judge Krohn denied any change in bond – meaning Gann continues to be held in jail without bond. At the initial arraignment after his arrest, Gann pleaded not guilty. The case was continued until another hearing on December 21st.

Grundy County Associate Judge Steve Hudson accepted a motion asking for a change in judge which allowed Krohn to be assigned to the Grundy County case. Bethany attorney Jonathan Meyer was selected as the special prosecutor. Cody McHargue of Trenton was injured during an assault in downtown Trenton on July 16th that resulted in surgeries and hospitalization.

Waiving preliminary hearings on separate felony charges were Trenton residents Christopher James Warren and Dan Richard Peters Junior. Both saw their cases bound over to Division One of the circuit court with appearances scheduled for Thursday, December 10th.

Warren is charged with possession of a controlled substance/synthetic cannabinoid and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia as of November 20th. Peters is charged from a November 27th incident that alleged 3rd-degree domestic assault and 1st-degree property damage.
