A 28-year-old Morris man recently pled guilty to a child porn charge in Grundy County. In January of 2020, John Duey was charged with four counts of possessing child porn, all class two felonies.

Earlier this month, Duey pled guilty to one count of possessing child porn while three other counts were dropped. The three other counts were dropped as part of the plea agreement. Investigators say Duey possessed the child porn on a computer at a residence in the 400 block of East Jackson Street.

In 2019, the Morris Police Department received a Cyber Tip from the Illinois Attorney General's Office advising that Duey was accessing child porn at the East Jackson Street address.

As part of the blind plea agreement, prosecutors set a cap of three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. Duey will be sentenced by Grundy County Judge Lance Peterson during a sentencing hearing on August 8th. Duey remains in the Grundy County Jail.
