TRINITY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Officials with the Trinity County District Attorney's Office have filed a motion to revoke a Trinity woman's probation after she was arrested for abusing her 68-year-old mother a second time Wednesday.

Leah Harlow, 38, was arrested back in January for abusing her mother for falling asleep. Harlow accepted a five-year probation sentence for the felony injury to the elderly charge in February.

Harlow is being held in the Houston County Jail on a felony injury to the elderly charge. Her bail has been set at $45,000.

According to the violation report filed by the Trinity County Probation Department, Harlow violated one of the conditions of her probation, which says, "Defendant shall commit no offense against the laws if this or any state of the United States or any other country"

The violation report also said that Harlow failed to contact her probation officer within 48 hours of getting arrested.

According to the arrest report, a deputy was called for a welfare check around 8 p.m. Tuesday, in the Sebastopol area. When he arrived, he reported the front door was open and he saw a 68-year-old woman in the kitchen cooking and reported she had several visible bruises on her face and had difficulty walking.

The deputy said the woman said her daughter abused her on Monday. While the woman was talking to the deputy, the deputy reported the daughter, Leah Harlow, 38, walked into the room but did not see the deputy and began yelling at her mother because the house was smoking from the mother cooking bacon.

The deputy said he let Harlow know she was there and took the mother to the hospital.

The mother said Harlow attacked her this time because she had not gone to bed, according to the report.
