AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - A temporary injunction has been issued on a woman from Amarillo, prohibiting her from practicing midwifery without a license and from representing herself as a licensed midwife to the public, until her case is finished.

Travis County District Court Judge, had previously issued a temporary restraining order on Leah Hernandez on March 13.

A temporary restraining order is only valid for 14 days, but a temporary injunction is good until the case is over.

The judge issued the injunction on March 21.

According to officials, Hernandez was practicing midwifery negligently and without a license here in Amarillo.

The investigation is still ongoing by The Randall County Sheriff’s Office.

Hernandez’s trial is set for August 2, in the 345th District Court of Travis County.
