Details are not forthcoming, but Sharon Hyde, wife of ex-Island Lake Mayor Tom Hyde has had her bail set at a whopping $400,000. (Here is a more complete article written earlier today.)
She has been charged with one count of official misconduct.
She runs the Creative Playtime, listed as a city department on the Island Lake web site.
Her husband, Thomas Hyde has been charged with two counts of misconduct, but has had bail set at a comparatively low $25,000.
In Illinois, people are allowed to get out of jail, if they can come up with 10% of the bail amount.
The rumor mill is saying Mrs. Hyde turned in time sheets for numerous hours she did not work.
