Worth County-  A south Georgia woman who escaped from jail is once again behind bars.  Worth County Sheriff's deputies arrested 19 year old Julia Dawn Dent Tuesday afternoon at Georgia Mobile Estates.

The Sheriff's Office had been hot on her trail for two days and caught her as she rested in an outdoor recliner. Dent struggled with deputies, but eventually was arrested.

She was being held in the Pulaski County Jail in Hawkinsville on a probation violation when she escaped through a back door during a visit to a doctor's office June 12-th.

In addition to theft and forgery charges in Pulaski County, she faces at least 9 outstanding warrants in Lee and Dougherty counties.
