Woman pleads guilty to thefts from Columbia Baptist Association

| September 6, 2013

A Dothan woman charged with stealing from the Columbia Baptist Association pleaded guilty on Wednesday… and was then arrested a short time later on additional charges.

Attorney Matt Lamere said his client, 52-year-old Tonya Renee Woodward, entered what's referred to as a blind guilty plea, which means there was no agreement for sentencing.

Woodward pleaded guilty in front of Circuit Court Judge Butch Binford to all 10 felony second-degree theft charges filed against her.

Dothan police investigators arrested Woodward on the felony theft charges on Oct. 8, 2012.

Lamere said his client remained free on the bail she posted shortly after her arrest. But only a few hours later he found out his client was wanted on additional charges.

Houston County District Attorney Doug Valeska said deputies served a four-count felony indictment charging Woodward with multiple first-degree theft offenses on Wednesday.

Lamere said when he and his client heard about the indictment she turned herself in. She posted bail totaling $40,000.
