Streator Armed Robbery Trial Pushed Back to December

Posted by wlpo on October 27, 2016

A Rockford man won’t be standing trial in a Streator armed robbery case on Monday as expected.

Prosecutors asked that the trial be moved back because they were still waiting on DNA evidence to be processed and did not expect it to be completed in time for 51-year old William Webb’s trial. Webb is accused of shooting at a Streator Police officer while trying to escape after robbing the south side Circle K back in August.

At the time of his arrest, Webb was on parole for a murder conviction in Winnebago County. He’s been charged with attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery, and aggravated discharge of a firearm.

Judge H. Chris Ryan agreed to move the trial back to December 5th. Webb is still in custody where he would need to come up with $200,000 to be released.
