Rock Falls man to enter plea in arson case
MORRISON – A longtime Rock Falls scofflaw accused of setting fire to the home from which he was evicted will be arraigned Wednesday on a felony arson charge.
Ronald Halgren, 71, appeared in court Thursday via closed-circuit TV from the Whiteside County Jail, where he is being held on $50,000 bond. He waived his right to a preliminary hearing, in which a judge hears evidence and determines whether there is enough to go to trial.
Halgren is charged with aggravated battery of a peace officer in an unrelated case.
