Habitual traffic violator charged for drivingAugust 14, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — A Ferdinand-area man found himself behind bars Sunday after a warrant was issued charging him with a felony driving offense.
A Dubois County Sheriff’s Office deputy who knew Todd J. Toby, 49, 7807 S. 100W, Ferdinand, was a habitual traffic violator from previous law enforcement contact stopped him driving a pickup truck in Jasper on June 28.
At that time, police said, Toby stated he was sorry and he was just going to get something to eat and go back to work. The deputy ensured Toby had legally parked the truck, then released him to finish his work day with the understanding he was still going to be criminally charged and the deputy would be applying for a warrant.
That warrant charging Toby with a Level 5 felony count of operating a motor vehicle after forfeiture of license for life was issued July 24 out of Dubois Superior Court. Authorities booked Toby into the Dubois County Security Center at 2:09 a.m. Sunday on the active warrant.
During an initial hearing Monday, the court entered a preliminary plea of not guilty on Toby’s behalf, set his next court appearance for Sept. 9 and set bond at $750.
Toby posted bond Monday afternoon.
