Lyndsey Brooke Grindol

FLORENCE — The trial of a Lauderdale County woman accused of breaking her daughter’s arm was set for the week of Jan. 13 after she waived her arraignment Thursday morning.

Court officials said Lyndsey Brooke Grindol, 25, 114 Woodland Hills Drive, Florence, is charged with child abuse in connection with injuries her daughter sustained in 2011.

By waiving the arraignment, Grindol pleaded not guilty to the charges, officials said.

Grindol was indicted on the charges in September.

Authorities said the girl was 19 months old at the time of the allged abuse.

Florence police said Grindol was living on Hermitage Drive when the child was injured July 27, 2011.

Florence police detective Keith Johnson said he began an investigation into the allegations after he was notified by the Lauderdale County Department of Human Resources.

Authorities said a Decatur doctor discovered the child’s injuries when Grindol took the girl in for an examination.

Police said the child had a broken arm and bruises on her face.

Grindol denied allegations that she injured the child.

Child abuse is a Class C felony and punishable by 1-10 years in prison if convicted.

Grindol is out of jail on a $5,000 bail.
