LIMA — A 36-year-old Cridersville woman entered pleas of not guilty Wednesday in Allen County Common Pleas Court to a third-degree felony charge of tampering with evidence and a fifth-degree felony charge of obstructing justice.

She was indicted in May by an Allen County grand jury.

Kristin McDaniel is alleged by prosecutors to have attempted to conceal or destroy evidence – a syringe used by another person to inject heroin – from police in an attempt to interfere with a criminal investigation into an alleged overdose of the unnamed individual.

McDaniel faces up to three years in prison on the tampering with evidence charge and 12 months on the obstruction of justice count.

In asking that her own-recognizance bond be continued, McDaniel said she is the single mother of two daughters and had recently gained employment. Judge Jeffrey Reed granted the continuation of the bond and scheduled a pre-trial hearing for Sept. 10.
