WOMAN CHARGED WITH ATTACKING OFFICERS FOR THIRD TIME

Home > Press Page

Wednesday, September 9, 2010— A Chicago woman sent to prison last week for assaulting a Cook County Jail correctional officer has been charged with assaulting yet another officer just days before she was to be sent to prison, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced Friday.

Sabrina StreeterSabrina Streeter, 27, is charged with aggravated battery to an officer, which is a felony. This marks the third time in the last 12 months that she has been charged with attacking a correctional officer.

Streeter came into the jail in August 2009 after being arrested in Burbank for prostitution. She was assigned to remain in the women’s general population section while she awaited trial. In March, she was charged with assaulting a correctional officer and ultimately sentenced to spend 364 days in the Cook County Jail. But in June, she was again charged with aggravated battery to another officer. She entered a guilty plea to that charge and was sentenced to spend three years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

On August 22, a first-year correctional officer went to Streeter’s cell to let her out for an hour of recreation. Because of prior incidents of violence against officers, all of Streeter’s movements are videotaped. When the rookie officer opened Streeter’s cell door, Streeter stepped out and immediately punched the female officer in the face. Other officers were able to quickly detain Streeter and place her under arrest.

Just 10 days later, Streeter was transported to the Dwight Correctional Center to begin serving her three-year sentence. She will be transported back to the Cook County Jail for hearings relating to her most recent criminal case.
