Teen charged in St. Charles burglaries to complete community service, pay restitution

A Schaumburg teenager charged in connection to multiple vehicle burglaries in St. Charles Township must pay about $3,500 in restitution, according to Kane County court records.

The restitution requirement is among numerous terms and conditions Rebecca A. Olson, 19, must fulfill as part of a deferred prosecution agreement with the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Judge Marmarie J. Kostelny accepted the agreement Tuesday. It is in effect through July 2015.

If Olson meets all the terms and conditions, the pending charges against her – three counts of unlawful use of a credit or debit card and one count of unlawful possession of a credit card – will be dismissed, according to the Second Chance Program agreement.

Failure to comply could result in Olson’s termination from the program, and her case may be returned to court for prosecution, the document states.

By signing the document, the agreement states, Olson is admitting she is guilty of the pending charges. They stemmed from eight vehicle burglaries last August in the area of Falcons Trail in St. Charles Township.

Under the agreement, Olson cannot leave Illinois without approval, she cannot use illegal drugs or other mood-altering substances, and she is subject to drug tests.

She must complete 140 hours of community service, enroll in the theft awareness program and pay a total of $3,506.66 in restitution to eight individuals and a bank.

She is expected to report to the program coordinator monthly and is expected in court July 28, 2015, regarding her compliance with the agreement.
