Indiana Man Who Overdosed at McDonald’s, Convicted in Ohio

CINCINNATI (AP) _ An Indiana man who police say overdosed on heroin in a McDonald's play area has been convicted of child endangering.
Hamilton County Municipal Judge Cheryl Grant convicted 37-year-old Robert Palmer Thursday on two misdemeanor charges after a nonjury trial. She scheduled sentencing for April 14.
The fire department in Green Township, just west of Cincinnati, responded to a call March 9 about two unresponsive adults in the fast-food restaurant's indoor play area. They recovered after emergency treatment for what police say were “life-threatening overdoses'' of heroin.
Authorities said the couple from Dillsboro, Ind., acknowledged using heroin while with two children, a 5-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy. 
Attorney Michael J. Trapp says Palmer is remorseful and had no intent to harm children.
A trial for Tamica Jeffers, 33, is still pending.
