MAYFIELD - The first person in Fulton County to be convicted under Leandra's Law has been jailed again after allegedly making unauthorized withdrawals on bank and benefits cards.
Katherine E. Adkins, 33, of Mayfield was arrested at state police barracks around 11 a.m. Monday and charged with grand larceny, a felony, and petit larceny, a misdemeanor.
She was sent to the Fulton County Jail on $5,000 bail.
Police said she made $348 in withdrawals from a stolen First Niagara Bank card, including two from Stewart's Shops in Mayfield totaling about $260, one from a Stewart's in Gloversville for about $50 and one from Walmart in the town of Johnstown for about $40.
Police said she also made $160 in unauthorized withdrawals from a Social Services benefits card. The benefits were to be used for children, police said.
The alleged crime was reported at 11:45 a.m. April 13, state police said.
In June 2010, Adkins was sentenced for driving drunk while her 9-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter were in the vehicle. She initially was arrested at 12:30 p.m. Jan. 27, 2010, on School Street in Mayfield, where police said she also possessed cocaine.
Before Leandra's Law, such driving incidents involving children resulted only in misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child, in addition to drunken-driving charges.
