Fostoria woman gets 36 months in drug case

A Fostoria woman was sentenced to a total of 36 months in prison this week after she pleaded guilty to charges of abduction, endangering children and attempted deception to obtain a dangerous drug.

April L. Walker, 39, who was indicted in February on two counts of child endangerment, a third-degree felony; one count of abduction, a third-degree felony; and one count of attempted deception to obtain a dangerous drug, a fifth-degree felony, was handed down the sentence by Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Steve Shuff, according to court documents.

During her appearance Monday, one count of child endangerment was dismissed.

Walker had been indicted on the charges for restraining the liberty of a mentally or physically handicapped child younger than 21 and torturing or cruelly abusing the same child. Those incidents occurred Nov. 15 and Nov. 25, according to the indictment.
