Two women have been charged after prosecutors say they were an accessory to two juveniles who committed an armed home invasion in Mundelein that left a victim injured.
Shayna A. Sparks, 19, of Mundelein, and Amanda Shalley, 20, of Mundelein, were charged with two counts of home invasion and one count of mob action.
Charging documents allege Sparks and Shalley were responsible for the actions of others, who committed a home invasion on November 2.
The incident occurred at a residence in the 400 block of North Seymour Avenue in Mundelein.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Kelse Banks said that Sparks and Shalley drove to the house with two juveniles.
The group had the intention of fighting the victim, Banks said.
One of the juveniles possessed a handgun and both of the juveniles entered the home.
Banks said the two fought the victim, injuring him, while Sparks and Shalley stayed outside in the car.
The two juveniles got back into the car and Sparks and Shalley drove them away, Banks said.
One of the juvenile suspects was injured during the incident. The male victim in the house was also injured.
Paramedics were called to the scene and transported the male victim, who sustained a stab wound to his finger.
Information regarding charges against the two juveniles was not available.
The home invasion charges against Sparks and Shalley are Class X felonies, which carry six to 30 years in prison.
Charges were filed against the two last week and both were taken into the custody of the Lake County Jail.
Shalley has since been released from the jail after posting 10% of her $300,000 bond. Sparks has also been released from the jail after posting 10% of her $200,000 bond.
Shalley is scheduled to appear in court again on February 23 for a preliminary hearing.
Sparks is scheduled to appear in court again on March 1 for a preliminary hearing.
