Source: News24 article Cook, IL – Darlenene Robinson was arrested in Chicago, Illinois for violating her parole, court records show.
Robinson posted $100 bond and was released.
Robinson was booked into the Cook County jail on a misdemeanor charge of trespassing on a public street and resisting arrest.
Robinson, who was released last week, told Chicago police she was released on bond and had her $1.5,000 bail waived.
Robinson’s bond was set at $500.
The Illinois Department of Corrections said Robinson was released after a preliminary hearing.
She has been charged with misdemeanor trespassing for allegedly breaking through a window of the Cook Correctional Facility.
The city of Chicago had no comment on Robinson’s case.
Robinson’s case is one of many in Cook County where inmates have been released on bail after posting bail.
Last month, for example, a Cook County man was released from jail after posting $10,000 bond, after pleading guilty to misdemeanor drug possession and drug distribution.
“We’re very pleased with this result and commend the Cook Department for taking swift action,” said Larry G. Giannapietro, executive director of the Illinois State Sheriffs Association, in a statement.
Last year, an Illinois judge set a bond for a Cook man accused of stealing an apartment.
According to the Cook City Clerk’s Office, Robinson was sentenced in March to four years in prison and three years of probation for misdemeanor theft after a judge ordered a five-year sentence for the other two offenses.
In November, Cook County Judge John P. Houser ordered the release of a man who was convicted of stealing a vehicle and had served just over a year of a six-month sentence.
The judge ordered the man, who is now living with his grandmother, to pay $500 in restitution and $25,000 in court costs.
