MORRIS – Grundy County State’s Attorney Jason Helland released the following felony dispositions. The State’s Attorney’s Office often reaches plea agreements in cases following a careful consideration of the charges, the facts of the case, a consultation with the crime victim, a review of the offender’s criminal history and weighing aggravating and mitigating factors.
