UPDATE - Alleged ‘zip tie/duct tape’ mom to remain in jail

Kimberly Dawn Stone

Leonardtown, MD - The mother of a five-year-old boy who had been allegedly bound and gagged by the woman due to what she claimed her behavioral issues will stay in the St. Mary’s County Detention Center. A second bond hearing for the accused—Kimberly Dawn Stone, 25 of Great Mills—was held via closed circuit television Thursday, Oct. 18 at District Court in St. Mary’s County.

An attorney from the Office of the Public Defender told Judge Karen Christy Holt Chesser that Stone was interested in enrolling in a drug rehabilitation program and seeking release. Following her arrest Oct. 1 on charges of second-degree abuse of a child in custody and second-degree assault, Stone was ordered held without bond. The abuse charge is a felony. The alleged incident occurred Sept. 29 and was reported to police by the boy’s father. According to court documents, Stone is the boy’s primary custodial parent.

“This is not an isolated case,” said Assistant State’s Attorney Laura A. Caspar, who added that Stone’s ongoing drug problem could pose problems. The judge concurred and stated Stone could apply for drug rehabilitation at the detention center. The defendant has a preliminary hearing tentatively scheduled for Nov. 7 in District Court.
