A Stewartville woman was arrested Wednesday on chemical endangerment charges relating to children, after having faced chemical endangerment charges previously.
On August 8, the Coosa County Department of Human Resources reported to the Sheriff’s Office about a case involving the chemical endangerment of three minor children.
After law enforcement investigated the case, it was determined that all three children tested positive for methamphetamine, as well as amphetamine.
On August 9, 36-year-old Charity Lynn Hamilton of the Stewartville area was arrested and charged with three counts of chemical endangerment of a child for the three minor children. She was arrested in Harpersville and transported to the Coosa County Jail without incident.
After Hamilton was transported back to the Sheriff’s Office along with her belongings and booked into jail, investigators checked her belongings. They discovered methamphetamine and fentanyl in her purse, as well as drug paraphernalia.
Hamilton was then further charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Her total bond for all six charges was set at $102,500. That included bonds of $30,000 for each chemical endangerment charge, $5,000 for each drug possession charge and $2,500 for the drug paraphernalia charge.
As of press time Hamilton remained in custody at the Coosa County Jail awaiting trial.
Hamilton had previously been arrested in July 2020 and charged at that time with two counts of chemical endangerment.
