Men charged in separate stabbing avoid jail

Two stabbing cases were resolved in LaSalle County courtrooms this month.

Julian A. Hamill of Ottawa is serving two years on court supervision for a battery charge he pled guilty to. Aggravated battery with a deadline weapon was dismissed in a plea agreement. Hamill was arrested after someone was stabbed on Ottawa’s south side in June 2019.

Dylan Duffield of Streator is beginning two-and-a-half years on probation for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon for a stabbing in Streator back in March. Both men are 24 years old.
