A New London woman made her initial appearance Monday afternoon in Waupaca Co. Circuit Court. Twenty-seven-year-old Samantha L. Dementer faces one count of felony bail jumping from an incident on Saturday in the City of New London. According to the criminal complaint, New London police officers were sent to Dementer’s home to check on her children’s welfare. Upon arrival, an officer spoke to Dementer and smelled the odor of alcohol and could tell she had been drinking, which Dementer admitted to.
New London Police verified that Dementer is on bond in Shawano Co. and that a condition of that bond is that Dementer maintain absolute sobriety. Dementer submitted to a PBT and her breath alcohol was .12. A cash bond is set for $1,000. If convicted, Dementer could face up to six years in prison. She is due back in court later this afternoon.
