Police Arrests Husband & Wife For Breast Feeding Baby After Taking Cocaine
42yrs old Som Lisaius and his 26yrs old wife Krystin Sorich Lisaius, were arraigned on 3 criminal felony charges each after police said their daughter ingested cocaine through her mother's breast milk.
Krystin, a former reporter allegedly had taken the drug before breast-feeding the baby girl.
The Tucson couple's daughter became unresponsive and lethargic after breast-feeding on May 15, so they took her to Oro Valley Hospital.
The television personalities said the child was 'wabbly,' 'became limp' and that her 'eyes were rolling into the back of her head,' according to The Tucson Weekly.
The pair did not want to allow the hospital to draw and test the baby's blood, so they left against the hospital's recommendation, but agreed to have her transferred to another facility.
Officials transported the baby girl via ambulance to Diamond Children's Hospital, and once there, the couple was still uncooperative and refused a toxicology test for the child.
Eventually, a urinalysis and a toxicology screen was conducted in the presence of hospital staff along with officials with child welfare. The tests showed that the baby girl had cocaine in her system.
A detective wrote in his report: 'It should be noted that at no time according to the report did either parent tell the hospital staff about the mother's cocaine use the night before and Krystin continued to breast feed while at the hospital.'
The mother first denied using cocaine and said she didn't know how the baby was exposed to it. But she later confessed to police that she snorted cocaine with her husband on May 14 while hosting friends in their Oro Valley home, according to a police report obtained by the Arizona Daily Star.
Sadly, further tests conducted on the baby's hair also tested positive for cocaine.
The husband and wife have now been charged for child abuse and other stronger charges. Irresponsibility!
