A Salisbury woman accused of driving while impaired with her children in the car, who also has multiple similar offenses, is back in jail, this time with a higher bond.
April Olivia Lomax, 28, attended a bond hearing today in district court where Rowan County District Attorney Brandy Cook told the court Lomax was a danger to herself, the community and her children.
“All in all the state is extremely concerned with Ms. Lomax and her driving habits. She is not only putting other citizens at risk, but her two children,” Cook said.
Lomax has a number of pending matters including driving while impaired, driving while licensed revoked, reckless driving to endanger and misdemeanor child abuse.
The hearing was held to review Lomax’s bond, which was set Thursday morning at $13,000 by District Court Judge Beth Dixon.
Lomax was arrested on March 6 on charges of driving while impaired and two counts of misdemeanor child abuse and given a $10,000 bond.
Police found her car wrecked on Camp Road with two children inside.
She also has pending matters in Cabarrus County.
Lomax remains in the Rowan County Detention Center.
