Suspect in stabbing arrested after failing to appear in court

September 21, 2011


A 26-year-old Lawrence woman who is accused of stabbing her boyfriend last month failed to show up for court Wednesday and was later arrested in connection with a separate case.

District Judge Sally Pokorny on Wednesday issued a bench warrant for Misty Durae Crook after Crook failed to appear in court for a preliminary hearing in her pending aggravated battery case. According to jail records, Lawrence police on Wednesday afternoon arrested Crook at her east Lawrence residence on charges of vehicle burglary and possession of stolen property.

Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said in the new case Crook was suspected of stealing a backpack from the vehicle of a 20-year-old Lawrence man Sunday afternoon in the Walmart parking lot, 3300 Iowa. Prosecutors in August filed an aggravated battery charge against Crook accusing her of stabbing her boyfriend, a 25-year-old Lawrence man whose injuries were not life threatening, during an altercation in the 1200 block of Almira Avenue.

Crook had denied stabbing her boyfriend at an August court hearing. She had been free on $7,500 bond before failing to show up for court Wednesday.

You think maybe the Judge will keep her this time. Or just give her another low bond that she can make and not show up until she is arrested for something else???? I know where my money is in this County.

Does the court keep bond after somebody skips? How does this work anywho? If she is caught do they give her money back?
