Threat defendant hit with battery charges

A Streator man, who was already facing charges of threatening La Salle County State's Attorney Karen Donnelly, was charged this week with attacking jail deputies.

Riddick Jaynes, 24, was charged in March 2017 with using a cellphone to communicate a threat to Donnelly. He has been in custody on this charge. On Tuesday, Jaynes was charged with committing aggravated battery against deputies. Jaynes had been represented by the public defender, but dropped the defender last month and is now representing himself.
