Consondra Janetta Wade, who lists an address on 20th Street, was arrested by the Calera Police Department on Jan. 1 and charged with first-degree domestic violence, unauthorized use of a vehicle and alias non-support.

On Dec. 17, 2017, Wade allegedly committed the crime of first-degree assault, according to court documents. Calera Police Chief Sean Lemley said Wade is accused of using a knife to stab her ex-boyfriend in the shoulder. The victim’s wounds were not life threatening.

Lemley said Wade left the scene of the crime after stabbing the male victim, which is why she wasn’t arrested until Jan. 1. Court documents state that Wade left the scene in the victim’s 2002 Saturn without permission.

As of Friday, Jan. 12, Wade was being held in the Shelby County Jail on bonds totaling $66,000.

First-degree domestic violence is a Class A felony and unauthorized use of a vehicle and alias non-support are both misdemeanors. A Class A felony is punishable upon conviction by 10 years to life in prison and up to $60,000 in fines.
