SYCAMORE – A 22-year-old DeKalb woman accused of breaking into an apartment and threatening someone Feb. 16 accepted a misdemeanor plea deal Monday.

Alicia M. Crider, of the 900 block of Spiros Court, pleaded guilty to criminal trespass to residence and resisting a peace officer. She was fined $1,000 and sentenced to 30 days in jail and two years of probation.

In exchange for her guilty plea, prosecutors dropped charges of home invasion and mob action. If convicted of home invasion, Crider could have been sentenced to between six and 30 years in prison.

Crider was among four people charged in connection with the incident in the 600 block of Greenbrier Road.

Police found her in an argument with several other people after someone called to report people running out of an apartment with a bat and hammer, court records show.

In connection to the same incident, Mitchell Jenkins, 23, of the 900 block of Spiros Court in DeKalb, was sentenced to 21/2 years of probation and 100 hours of community service for mob action.

Charges remain pending against Jemario Corneilius, 27, of the 600 block of Lucinda Avenue in DeKalb, and against Elise Lewis, 19, of the 1000 block of State Street in DeKalb.

Both are due in court Sept. 30.
