OTTAWA — A misdemeanor gambling charge was filed Wednesday against the owner of Machelle’s Backstreet in La Salle.

Machelle C. Senica, 51, of 331 Roosevelt Road, La Salle is charged with illegal gambling, a Class A misdemeanor carrying up to a year in La Salle County Jail.

The charge comes following a gambling raid, which state gaming officials previously refused to confirm, on Jan. 29.

Senica will next appear March 20 before Chief Judge H. Chris Ryan Jr.

Reached by telephone at her business, Senica said she had retained a lawyer and had no comment on the charge.
