Viney's sexual assault charges reduced after plea agreement
MONROE - A Monticello man pleaded guilty Thursday to a charge of contributing to a child's delinquency and no contest to charges of fourth-degree sexual assault after he had sex with an underage Belleville girl in 2014. William Ross Viney, 25, had been charged with three counts of third-degree sexual assault and one count of child enticement. However, as part of a plea agreement, his charges were reduced to three misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree sexual assault and one Class H felony count of contributing to the delinquency of a child.
