Alderman in Spring Valley found guilty of battery

Posted by wlpo on October 12, 2016

A Spring Valley alderman has been found guilty of misdemeanor battery.

According to the NewsTribune, Judge C.J. Hollerich handed down the verdict Tuesday for 57-year-old Chuck Hansen. He was arrested back in March after getting in a scuffle outside of a bar in Spring Valley. The altercation was caught on video by the victim and posted for a few days at least on YouTube.

Hansen will be sentenced November 10th. He’s looking at a maximum of a year in county jail plus a fine. Hansen could also get probation.

This isn’t his first brush with the law. Back in 2001 he pled guilty to two counts of battery in a Bureau County Court. He was given a fine and one year probation.
