CINCINNATI (WKRC) - An East Price Hill mother appeared in court to answer to charges from two separate incidents. Shawniece Dockery faces charges of child endangering, theft, driving with a suspended license and other traffic charges.

In one incident, police say Dockery crashed into another car on Warsaw Avenue in June and then ran away from the scene with her child who needed medical attention for injuries from the accident.

Dockery's attorney said that she knew someone on that street so she went to the home and got her child to the hospital from there.

In September, she's accused of taking a car without the owner's permission and crashing into into another car on Poplar Avenue.

While in court, Dockery also pleaded guilty to a drug possession charge.

A judge ordered her held on $70,000 bond.
