On Saturday, June 29th, at approximately 4:15 A.M. several individuals arrived at the Marshall County Jail, apparently to post bond for another individual who was already in the Marshall County Jail. While the subjects were at the jail and as they began leaving one of the civilian staff employees at the jail noticed that one or more of the subjects may be intoxicated. The vehicle left the jail parking lot at approximately 4:35 A.M.
As they were leaving the jail an officer with the Marshall County Police Department was notified about the incident. The officer caught up to the vehicle in the area of Oak Road and Jefferson Street in Plymouth. A traffic stop was performed on the vehicle because the vehicle was observed driving left of center. During the traffic stop probable cause was found that the driver of the vehicle, 32 year old Wendy L. Workman of Granger had been operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
Also in the vehicle at the time of the stop was a 10 year old juvenile female, who was a relative of one of the occupants.
Wendy L. Workman was detained at the scene and transported to the Marshall County Jail, where she failed a certified breath test. Workman was lodged at the County Jail for Operating While Intoxicated – Endangering as a class D Felony, and Operating with a BAC of .15% or above . The mother of the child was contacted about the incident and transportation was arranged for the child and other occupants from the scene of the traffic stop.
Workman was released Sunday about 1:50 p.m. after posting a $1505 cash bond. She will appear in Marshall Superior Court II on July 15th.
Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
