Bexar County woman indicted on child abuse charges

A Bexar County woman has been indicted on multiple charges of child abuse.

Lakendra Monique Williams is charged with assault-intentionally/knowingly causing serious bodily injury to a child. The 18 count indictment alleges that on Feb. 18, 2021, Williams intentionally and knowingly caused serious bodily injury to three children 14 years of age or younger by: striking the children with her hands, striking the children with her foot, striking the children with a chain held by her hand, causing the children to kneel on grains of rice, handcuffing the children to a bed and that Williams had a legal duty to act and failed to do so in that Williams failed to provide food, water and shelter to the children. This case is being prosecuted by the Family Violence Division in the 144th District Court. Assault-intentionally/knowingly causing serious bodily injury to a child is a first degree felony punishable by 5 to 99 years or life in prison and a possible fine of up to $10,000.

This case was among 147 felony indictments handed down by a Bexar County Grand Jury this week.

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 these and potentially other cases are either pending or may be under investigation, we can make no further comment on them.

Copies of indictments 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.
