DeKalb woman accused of breaking infant’s arm arraigned

SYCAMORE – Christina Timm smiled at her husband when she entered the courtroom Thursday on allegations she broke her infant daughter’s arm.

Timm, 30, of the 300 block of Gurler Street, DeKalb, formally pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of aggravated battery to a child under 13 years old and aggravated domestic battery. If convicted of the first charge, she could face between six to 30 years in prison and would be required to register as a violent offender against youth, said Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert.

When she entered the courtroom, Adam Timm, 28, of the 300 block of Gurler Road, DeKalb, mouthed words to her such as, “Call me.”

Adam Timm was in court to provide an update on court payments he was making in his own criminal case. He was sentenced to four years of probation, after he pleaded guilty Dec. 3 to aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

The victim in his case is not the same victim as in Christina Timm’s case, court records show.

Christina Timm is accused of breaking two bones in the arm of her daughter, who is less than a year old, in July. She is next due in court Sept. 18.
