SYCAMORE – A Sycamore attorney charged with prostitution may be close to reaching a plea agreement, according to remarks made during a court hearing Wednesday.

Reema Bajaj, 25, of the 100 block of Penny Lane, appeared Wednesday at the DeKalb County Courthouse along with her attorney, David Camic. Along with DeKalb County State’s Attorney Clay Campbell, Bajaj and Camic stood before Circuit Judge Robbin Stuckert and Camic said the two sides were close to an agreement.

Bajaj was charged May 31 with three counts of prostitution. Two of the counts are Class A misdemeanors, and a third count is a Class 4 felony – punishable by up to three years in prison – because it reportedly occurred within 1,000 feet of a school.

The next court appearance for Bajaj is set for Aug. 31.
