An Arizona husband and wife, both TV news reporters for separate stations, have been indicted on drug charges after cocaine was found in their young baby girl’s system.
26-year-old Krystin Lisaius and her husband, Somchai Lisaius, used cocaine while having friends over on May 14th.
The next morning, Krystin breastfed the 4-to-6-month-old baby, and it soon became ill; the couple say the infant â€œbecame limpâ€ and that her â€œeyes were rollingâ€.
They wouldnâ€™t, however, allow the hospital to draw blood.
The couple then, against the hospitalâ€™s advice, left the facility under the guise of taking her to another medical center. They did, but again refused to allow any toxicology tests.
The questionable parents eventually gave in and admitted to using cocaine after it was found in the baby’s system.
Krystin says she didnâ€™t think the baby would be affected by the drug if 12 hours had passed before breastfeeding her.
Both Krystin and Somachi were indicted on charges of possession of a dangerous drug, possession of drug paraphernalia, and child abuse.
They pleaded not guilty this past Monday.
Somchai Lisaius has since been fired from his job at KOLD. Krystin Lisaiusâ€™ status is unknown at this time.
