Racine police say a 21-year-old woman out on bond for a case involving identity theft was arrested last month for her fourth charge of driving without a license.
Ladonna Craig, of Racine, was charged Wednesday in Racine County Circuit Court with misdemeanor operating without a license, 3rd or subsequent offense and one felony charge of bail jumping. If convicted, she faces up to 6-1/2 years in prison and/or up to $10,500 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, police at 1:28 a.m. June 28 observed a vehicle without a front license plate traveling on Taylor Avenue near 18th Street. The driver – identified as Craig – was determined to not have a valid driver’s license and at least three prior convictions for operating without a license. Officers also discovered that Craig was out of jail on bond for a previously filed felony case against her for identity theft and fraudulent use of a credit card and took her into custody.
The complaint for driving without a license was filed against Craig on July 9, and she was ordered in for her initial appearance Wednesday where she was assigned a $1,000 bond. She will next be in court August 6 for her preliminary hearing.
For the identity theft case, those charges were filed April 16, and Craig was given a $2,000 signature bond. Online court records indicate her next court date is August 14 for a status conference.
