JOHNSON COUNTY, Kan. — A 31-year-old Lawrence woman convicted of numerous violations for driving under the influence, has been ordered back to jail by a Johnson County judge.

On Monday, Feb. 23, Mary Womack was in a Johnson County courtroom, appearing visibly frustrated and asked a judge to reduce her $25,000 bond. The judge denied her request because prosecutors call Womack “a danger to society.” However, court records do show that she posted bond on shortly after 5 p.m., on that Monday, Feb. 23.

On Thursday, March 5, while Womack was in court again for a schedule hearing, the judge revoked her bond, saying Womack attempted to make contact with the victim using social media. The judge also doubled her bond amount and set it at $50,000. Womack is scheduled to appear in court again on April 17 at 9 a.m.

During Womack’s Feburary video arraignment the judge announced Womack faces a total of six new charges.

Court papers reveal that just after 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 21, Johnson County sheriff’s deputies arrested Womack as she drove along K-10 just west of De Soto.

FOX 4 has learned the Lawrence mom has at least three prior DUI convictions, and now prosecutors have charged her with felony DUI, obstruction of the legal process, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, driving without an ignition interlock device and battery.
