CINCINNATI: A woman who police say overdosed on heroin with her boyfriend in a McDonald’s play area near Cincinnati is set to appear in court on Monday.
Thirty-three-year-old Tamica Jeffers is set for a non-jury trial on charges of child endangerment in Hamilton County court.
Jeffers’ attorney has declined comment
Her boyfriend, 37-year-old Robert Palmer, was convicted of two misdemeanor charges last month.
Emergency officials responded to a call March 9 about two unresponsive adults in the Green Township fast-food restaurant’s indoor play area. They needed emergency treatment to recover from what police called “life-threatening overdoses.”
Authorities say the couple, from Dillsboro, Ind., acknowledged using heroin while with two children, a 5-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy.
Palmer is the girl’s father; the boy’s relationship with the couple is unclear.
