Morris pleads guilty

PRINCETON — A Princeton man has entered an open plea of guilty to the Class 2 felony of burglary.

Tony L. Morris, 52, entered his gutty plea on March 20 in Bureau County Court before Circuit Judge Marc Bernabei. The judge ordered the probation department to conduct a pre-sentence investigation and set a sentencing hearing for 1:15 p.m. May 8.

Morris was represented in court by Peru attorney Douglas Olivero. Prosecuting the case was State's Attorney Patrick Herrmann.

On March 26, 2012, a Princeton business reported to the Princeton Police Department that approximately $2,800 in receipts had been removed from the premises. Following an investigation by the Bureau County Sheriff's Department, Morris was indicted on Aug. 15, 2012, by the Bureau County grand jury.
