Former TV personalities sentenced to a year of probation after cocaine found in their baby’s system
TUCSON, Arizona — Two former Arizona TV personalities have been sentenced to a year of probation and suspended 30-day jail terms after cocaine was found in their baby’s system.
Krystin Rae Lisaius and husband Somchai Lisaius, former Tucson TV station reporters, were sentenced Monday, Oct. 3 after pleading guilty to endangerment Aug. 31.
Police say the baby was taken to a hospital May 15 after being breastfed and appearing to be in distress.
Tests found cocaine in the four-month-old baby’s body, and police learned the couple had a party the night before.
After leaving the hospital, the child was staying with a grandparent as of August.
The couple could have been sentenced to up to two years in prison or probation. Charges of child abuse and drug possession had been dropped under a plea agreement.
