Apparently, indictments remain hidden from the public until the person indicted is arrested.
Woodstock resident Kim Zinke was served with her arrest warrant at the Huntley Police Department last Friday.
Judge Michael Caldwell authorized the warrant.
He set bond at $10,000.
To avoid jail during her trial, she had to post $1,000, ten percent of the bond.
The McHenry County Clerk’s Office received the paperwork Monday.
The case is scheduled for July 1, 2016, at 9 AM in Courtroom 304 in front of Judge Sharon L. Prather.
Zinke is charged with three felonies.
Each is for unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
The following three drugs are listed in the indictment
- Modifinil, used to treat excessive sleepiness
- Zolpidem, a sedative
- Tapentadol, an opioid pain medication
If she is convicted of a felony, she will be ineligible to receive a pension for her service in the McHenry County Kane County Sheriff’s Offices.
The three count indictment follows:
Kim Zinke is the wife of former McHenry County Undersheriff Andy Zinke, who almost was almost nominated as the Republican Party’s candidate two years ago.
At the time McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi was a primary supporter of Zinke opponent Bill Prim, who emerged victorious.
Because of the close connection to Prim, Bianchi convinced the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office to prosecute the case against Kim Zinke.
