Stephanie L. Bax, 19, formerly of DeKalb, was charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance.

SYCAMORE – DeKalb County Associate Judge John McAdams released a 19-year-old DeKalb woman from jail on her own recognizance Friday after prosecutors filed more drug charges against her.

Stephanie Bax, formerly of the 100 block of Oak Drive, DeKalb, recently was charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of Northern Illinois University, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance, court records show.

Bax is required to live with her father in Oakwood Hills as a condition of her release. She is due in court Aug. 21.

Police said Bax delivered less than a gram of cocaine on June 3, more than a month before they found about 7.65 grams of cocaine in the apartment of Bax and Jamie Spencer, 33, of the 100 block of Oak Drive, DeKalb.

Spencer is accused of delivering less than a gram of crack cocaine July 8 near Littlejohn Elementary School and delivering less than a gram of cocaine June 3 within 1,000 feet of Northern Illinois University, court records show.

Both women could face between six and 30 years in prison if convicted of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school.
