Alexia F. Posada-Reyes, 20, of Harvard.

A woman has been sentenced to probation after taking a plea deal in a home invasion in Harvard where the victim was injured, court records show.

The Harvard Police Department responded around 10 a.m. on August 23, 2022, to the 300 block of South Park Avenue in Harvard for a call of a disturbance inside a residence.

Alexia F. Posada-Reyes, 20, of Harvard, was arrested after officers conducted an investigation.

Harvard Police Chief Tyson Bauman said it was learned that Posada-Reyes was upset over a social media post.

The woman went to the residence in the 300 block of South Park Avenue and kicked the front door open, Bauman said

Posada-Reyes entered the residence without permission to confront the resident, who made the social media post, Bauman said.

She then allegedly punched a woman in the face, injuring her, according to a criminal complaint.

Posada-Reyes was charged with one count of home invasion and transported to the McHenry County Jail.

While police were investigating the incident, they learned that a 23-year-old woman in the residence had an active arrest warrant and took her into custody as well, Bauman said.

McHenry County Judge Tiffany Davis ordered Posada-Reyes held on a $50,000 bond. She was released from the jail after posting $5,000 cash.

A grand jury later indicted Posada-Reyes on one count of criminal trespass to residence and one count of battery but did not charge her with home invasion.

Prosecutors then dismissed the home invasion charge, which was filed at the time of her arrest, after the indictment was returned.

Home invasion is a Class X felony, meaning it carries a prison sentence of six to 30 years if convicted.

Court records show Posada-Reyes pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of criminal trespass to residence, a Class 4 felony, in exchange for her misdemeanor battery charge being dismissed.

As part of the deal, Posada-Reyes was sentenced to 24 months of second-chance probation by McHenry County Judge James Cowlin.

Posada-Reyes, who has no prior criminal history, was also ordered to complete 30 hours of public service work and not consume any alcohol or illegal drugs.

Cowlin ordered Posada-Reyes to maintain her employment and pursue a course of study or vocational training as part of her probation conditions.
