Veronica KlickaOn Nov. 29, Veronica Klicka reported that she was stabbed by an unknown offender while walking along a trail in the Deer Grove East Forest Preserve area. She had an apparent stab wound and was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

During the course of their investigation, Sheriff’s Police detectives learned that she had injured herself with a knife. She fabricated that someone had stabbed her because she believed she was not supposed to be in possession of any weapons because she is on court-ordered supervision for DUI.

Klicka was arrested on Dec. 5 and charged with disorderly conduct – false report of an offense, a class 4 felony. She received an I-bond (own recognizance) during a Dec. 6 bond hearing at the George N. Leighton Criminal Courts Building.

Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.
