to the delinquency of a child, and two counts of felony bail jumping.
"If convicted on all charges, Johnson faces up to 37 years nine months in prison and/or fined up to $70,000.
"According the criminal complaint, officers with the Racine Police Department were called to a home in the 2700 block of 21st
St for a report of an 11-year-old girl being struck in the face and a
12-year-old girl’s neck being stomped on at 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. During
the investigation, officers learned that Johnson physically fought the
girls after they had a disagreement with her daughter at 3 a.m.

fighting, she brought her two children over to the 11-year-old girl’s
home. Johnson told police there was a verbal altercation, but she denied
hitting the girl or stomping on the other girl’s neck.
