UPDATE 2/11/19:

The Kendall County Sheriff's Office says a Yorkville woman, charged with a felony for alleged Deceptive Practices, failed to comply with her program after allegedly writing a bad check.

Seventy-two-year-old Charlene Johnson of Overlook Ct. was taken into custody on a warrant on Friday afternoon. The warrant was issued January 28th.

The sheriff's office says that on May 9th of 2018, detectives began a criminal investigation after Johnson allegedly wrote a $500 check to a local business which was returned with insufficient funds.

Kendall County Court records indicate the charge stems from a bad check July of 2017. Officials with the sheriff's office say that Johnson had enrolled in the Kendall County State's Attorney's Office "Bad Check Program," which is an avenue to rectify issues surrounding bad checks without filing criminal charges.

Johnson allegedly failed to comply with the terms of the program and the warrant was issued. Following her arrest on Friday, she was released from the Kendall County Jail after posting 10 percent of $2,500 bail.

As WSPY has previously reported, Johnson and her son, Tad Johnson were found not guilty of various Resisting a Peace Officer and Disorderly Conduct charges in July of 2018 in a Yorkville Police misconduct case.

Dash cam audio and a court finding brought into question Yorkville Police officers' actions from the September of 2017 arrests, including a statement by Officer Jeffrey Johnson who allegedly told Tad Johnson to "end his own life" after Tad Johnson was allegedly yelling obscenities and presenting the middle finger from inside the home.

The Johnson's are now suing the city, Jeffrey Johnson and Sgt. Sarah Klingel in a federal civil rights lawsuit.

Kendall County Court records show Charlene Johnson has obtained attorney Liam Dixon as her defense counsel, who represented both Johnson's during their 2017 cases.

Johnson is due back in court on February 19th.
