DeKalb woman denies home invasion charge

SYCAMORE – A DeKalb woman accused of breaking into an apartment and threatening someone inside pleaded not guilty Wednesday. 

Alicia M. Crider, 23, of the 900 block of Spiros Court, is seeking a jury trial on charges of home invasion, mob action and criminal trespass to a residence. Home invasion typically is punishable by between six and 30 years in prison; probation is not an option.

Crider was arrested Feb. 16. That day, DeKalb police responded to a caller who said people were running out of an apartment with a bat and a hammer, court records show. DeKalb police went to the 800 block of Greenbrier Road and found Crider in an argument with several other people, court records show.

Crider, along with Mitchell R. Jenkins, 23; Jemario Corneilius, 26; and Elise E. Lewis, 19, told the police they were in an apartment because another person had stolen Crider’s laptop earlier that day, court records show.

Crider is free after her parents posted her $5,000 bail Feb. 21, court records show. She will be in court July 8 for a status hearing.
