A Grundy County man who sexually assaulted a child has pleaded guilty. In a Grundy County courtroom on January 9th, Timmy Odom Jr., 35, of Morris pled guilty to predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, a class X felony.

Court records show Odom sexually assaulted a child under the age of 10 at a location in Morris sometime between February and March of 2018.

As part of the blind plea agreement, another class X felony charge was dropped and prosecutors agreed to a sentencing cap of 18 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.
