A 22-year-old woman linked to a series of summer home burglaries in Batavia has applied for Kane County's Deferred Prosecution Program, according to court records.

Sharonda Y. Moore, of the 400 block of Treasure Drive, Batavia, was initially charged with possession of a stolen laptop in connection to burglaries in August.

The felony charge could carry a punishment of anywhere from probation to five years in prison, but if Moore can stay out of trouble for a year and pass drug tests, the charges will be dropped and her arrest expunged.

The program is for first-time, nonviolent offenders.

Curtis Hobbs, 24, of Aurora, and Terrell Jones-Bradley, 22, of Batavia, still face charges in the case and are due in court Friday.

Hobbs was on probation for a May 2011 burglary in Aurora when he was charged with unlawful use of a credit card, a felony.

Jones-Bradley faces four to 15 years in prison on a felony residential burglary charge.

Another defendant, Gregory Jordan, 26, of Maywood, pleaded guilty in September after spending 45 days in jail and received 18 months probation.

According to authorities, the burglaries occurred at night at homes along Woodland Hills and Wagner roads an involved small electronics, smartphones and credit cards.

The stolen credit cards were later used at an Aurora Walmart to buy an Xbox 360 and a "Walking Dead" video game, and authorities used surveillance video to identify suspects and obtain search warrants, according to court records.
