In the Associate Division of Grundy County Circuit Court on Tuesday, February 8, 2022, two felony counts against Jeffrey Scott White were reduced to misdemeanors. White pleaded guilty to the amended counts and to a third misdemeanor stemming from an arrest on November 27th last year.
The amended charges are fourth-degree assault of a special victim and resisting interfering with an arrest. The other count was a first offense of peace disturbance. On a plea agreement, imposition of sentence was suspended and White was placed on two years supervised probation. He’s to wear a (SCRAM) electronic bracelet for six months and pre-pay the $50 installation fee and the first 30-day fee of $330, then the same fee each of the following months.
White also was told to pay monthly probation fees. The court ordered White to attend four sessions of couples’ counseling. Restitution of $1,829 was approved. White donated $300 to the law enforcement restitution fund and paid the court costs. Money was taken from the posted cash bond. In addition, White is to write a letter of apology to Police Officer Keith Edmondson.
