From Local Sources
JASPER — Authorities booked a woman into the Dubois County Security Center late Wednesday on a warrant issued after she failed to pay court-ordered restitution and did not attend related review hearings.
Maria T. Menjibar Benitez, 33, 3828 N. Portersville Road, Jasper, was charged with operating a motor vehicle with ever receiving a license and driving with no insurance after an October 2017 accident in Jasper. Menjibar Benitez pleaded guilty and was required to pay $6,000 in restitution to cover damages to the other driver’s vehicle.
Authorities began scheduling review hearings that Menjibar Benitez did not attend in October 2018 after authorities told the court she had made payments in the amount of $370, leaving a balance of $5,630.
A warrant was issued for Menjibar Benitez out of Dubois Superior Court Jan. 8 of this year. She was booked into the security center at 11:29 p.m. Wednesday on the active warrant.
During a court appearance Friday, the payment history was reviewed, her next court appearance was set for Oct. 22 and bond was set at $250. Menjibar Benitez remains lodged at the security center.
