Mary Beth Lawrence
According to the criminal complaint filed in District Court on Thursday, there have been three reported incidents of harassment or stalking made against Mary Beth Lawrence by the student who accused David Lawrence of touching her sexually.
An incident report filed on May 28 states that Mary Beth, driving a black Cadillac, followed the student in her vehicle nearly two miles along Sycamore Avenue. The complainant attempted to shake the other vehicle by making several turns, but the Cadillac kept pace. The two cars achieved a reported speed of 70 mph.
The records also state that during the time when the Lawrence case was being investigated in December 2011, the victim and her mother reported that as they entered the Bath and Body Shop at the Roswell Mall, Mary Beth and her daughter exited Coach House Store. The Lawrences followed the victim and her mother into the Bath and Body Shop. The victim left the shop to go to Claire’s, and Marybeth and her daughter appeared in front of the second store. The victim called her mother for assistance, and when her mother approached Claire’s, the two Lawrence women left. The investigating detective, Kim Northcutt, reportedly notified David Lawrence’s attorney, S. Doug Jones Witt, of the incident. Case documents stated Witt said he would talk to the family.
The court records also indicate a third incident took place in January or February during the Roswell-Goddard High School game when the victim attempted to use the restroom. When she left the facilities, she found Mary Beth standing just outside the door. The victim then went to a second bathroom. Mary Beth Lawrence followed her. When the victim returned to her seat, she saw Mary Beth and her daughter watching her. The victim obtained the assistance of a New Mexico State Police officer and a security guard who had witnessed the incident. The officer escorted her to her car, but when the victim returned to the game, she saw the Lawrences’ daughter walking back into the auditorium.
Mary Beth bonded out Friday with a $2,500 unsecured bond.
