University of Kansas Law Professor Charged with Domestic Battery

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Stephen Ware, a law professor at the University of Kansas, was arraigned on Tuesday via video in court at the Douglas County Jail for domestic violence charges stemming from an incident with his wife. Ware was taken into custody on Monday around 6 a.m. at his home in the 1000 block of Brynwood Court for domestic battery, according to 6 News Lawrence.

During the hearing, the state was looking for $2,500 cash bond but defense attorneys were able to convince the judge to permit Ware to post bond of $500. They reasoned that Ware is not a flight risk because he works as a professor in Lawrence.

His wife tried to prevent him from contacting the couple’s kids or from getting his clothes, unless he talks with her attorney. He has been charged with domestic battery. He is due to appear in court again next week.

“By default, that’s a no bond situation before he sees a judge,” said Sgt. Trent McKinley for the Lawrence Police Department in reference to the domestic battery charges.
