A Morris man was indicted by a Grundy County grand jury this week on a sex related charge.

William Handford was charged with failing to register as a sex offender, a class three felony. The indictment alleges the 57-year-old Handford knowingly failed to annually register with the Morris Police Department on June 23rd of 2021.

Handford is required to register as a sex offender because he was convicted of criminal sexual assault out of Will County nearly 15 years. Handford was 42 and the victim was 31.

Handford was arrested by the Morris Police Department on a Grundy County warrant on Saturday, July 24th and remains in the Grundy County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
