Jessica M., a Minor, ) Honorable
) Noreen M. Daly,
Respondent-Appellant). ) Judge Presiding.
JUSTICE TOOMIN delivered the opinion of the court:
Following a hearing, the respondent, Jessica M., was adjudicated delinquent for the
offense of aggravated battery. On appeal, respondent asserts that: (1) the State failed to prove
her delinquent beyond a reasonable doubt; (2) the trial court erred in refusing to allow reputation
testimony about the victim; (3) the court erred in finding her guilty on two counts of aggravated
battery, in violation of the one-act, one-crime rule; (4) her sentence of probation must be
modified to end on her twenty-first birthday; and (5) the mandatory DNA statute is
unconstitutional as violative of respondent’s fourth amendment rights and privacy rights under
the Illinois Constitution. For the following reasons, we affirm the trial court’s order, but modify
respondent’s term of probation.
The amended petition for adjudication of wardship of Jessica M. stemmed from her
alleged beating of Rosalinda Rodriguez at 3011 South Farrell, in Chicago, on the night of June
