Jamie L. Spencer, 33, of DeKalb, was charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

SYCAMORE — Prosecutors filed more charges Thursday against a DeKalb woman accused of having crack cocaine near Littlejohn Elementary School, court records show.

Jamie L. Spencer, 33, of the 100 block of Oak Drive, is now accused of delivering less than a gram of crack cocaine on July 8 within 1,000 feet of Littlejohn Elementary as well as delivering less than a gram of cocaine June 3 within 1,000 feet of Northern Illinois University, according to court records.

Her new charges are two counts each of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Spencer was initially accused of having about 7.65 grams of cocaine July 11 near Littlejohn along with her roommate, 19-year old Stephanie L. Bax.

Of all the charges Spencer faces, the most serious, unlawful possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school, is punishable by between six and 30 years in prison. Spencer remained in jail Thursday unable to post 10 percent of her $325,000 bond.

She is next due in court Friday.
