SYCAMORE – A 17-year-old DeKalb girl accused of throwing items at a pregnant 17-year-old during a GED preparation class Wednesday remained in DeKalb County Jail on Thursday, unable to post $5,000 bond.

Jasmine Winston, of the 300 block of Manning Drive, DeKalb, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery and a single count of resisting a peace officer, according to a DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Winston began throwing items at another student in a GED preparation class at Kishwaukee College about 10 a.m. Wednesday, despite the other girl telling her she was pregnant and did not wish to fight her,DeKalb County Sheriff Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said. College staff separated the two, and the pregnant girl declined medical attention, the news release stated.

“The instructor and other students were in the classroom at the time,” Dumdie said.

If convicted of aggravated battery, Winston could be sentenced to probation or to between three and five years in prison. She is next due in court Monday.
