This morning, a Bexar County Grand Jury indicted the mother of a missing toddler on a charge of tampering with evidence.
The charge reflects that on March 15, 2021, D’Lanny Reaneille Chairez, knowing that an investigation was in progress did intentionally and knowingly conceal a child (James Chairez). Tampering with evidence is a third degree felony punishable by 2 to 10 years in prison and a possible fine of up to $10,000.
This case is being prosecuted by the Family Violence Division in the 144th District Court. An indictment is not a finding of guilt. A person charged by indictment is presumed innocent until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury or a judge. Because it is pending trial, we can make no further comment on this case.
A copy of the indictment may be requested from the Bexar County District Clerk. Information on court settings can be found by searching the case online or directly from the court.
