MAPLE PARK – A former Kaneland High School student was charged with trespassing after she returned to the school after being issued a written trespass warning, according to Kane County Sheriff’s reports and court records.
Caroline C. Ogle, 18, of the 400 block of West Pierce Street, Elburn, was charged March 18 with criminal trespass to Kaneland High School, 47W326 Keslinger Road, Maple Park, reports and court records state.
Criminal trespass is a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,500 if convicted.
Sheriff’s deputies were notified by a school security employee shortly after 9 a.m. that Ogle, who had withdrawn from the school on Dec. 18, 2018, was seen in the back seat of a Jeep Cherokee in the parking lot, reports stated.
Ogle’s presence violated the trespass warning issued to her on March 11, reports stated.
During the March 11 incident, Ogle “sat in the parking lot and messaged students in the building that she was [redacted] causing multiple students to go to their school counselors upset and in great distress,” the report stated.
The deputy noted seeing first-hand Ogle exhibiting extreme mood swings from sobbing to laughter to rage and back to sobbing, the report stated.
Ogle was barefoot and had no coat, but she refused the deputy’s offer of a blanket to keep warm while she sat on a curb to await transport to the Kane County jail, the report stated.
The Jeep Cherokee Ogle was found in both on March 11 and March 18 belonged to her ex-boyfriend, who is a Kaneland student, the report stated.
Deputies were unable to speak with him and did not know if Ogle had permission to be in the vehicle, the report stated.
“I have serious concerns that she will attempt to return to the school again, if only to garner more attention from students,” the report stated.
Ogle was released on a $1,500 personal recognizance bond and is scheduled to appear in branch court on April 15, court records show.
As a condition of her bond, Ogle was ordered to stay away from Kaneland High School.
Kaneland Principal Jill Maras said she could not comment about Ogle.
“She is not a student of ours right now,” Maras said. “I cannot comment. The matter is between her and the sheriff’s office.”
