Som Lisaius, Krystin Sorich: TV Reporters’ Baby Positive For Cocaine, Photos & Facts About Couple & Case

Som Lisaius, Tucson television news reporter, and his wife have each been charged after their 4-month-old baby tested positive for cocaine.

According to court records, the Oro Valley couple had been indicted on three counts of drug and child abuse charges.

An investigation was done by the Oro Valley Police Department. The investigation was started when the Lisaiuses took their infant child to a hospital in May, said Tucson.com.

After tests were administered on the infant at the hospital, it was revealed that cocaine was present in the 4-month-old’s system. According to a police report, on June 9, the Lisaiuses were charged with child abuse, possession of a dangerous drug, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Krystin Rae Lisaius, 26, was a former reporter at KGUN 9, and Somchai P. Lisaius, 42, was a former reporter at Tucson News Now.

Oro Valley Police reported that Krystin confessed that she used to breastfeed the child within 12 hours after she had consumed cocaine.

The department also stated that a search warrant was issued. Due to the warrant, certain items were seized, including multiple baggies that contained white powder. Later, the substance was tested positive as cocaine.

The police report also noted that on May 14, Som Lisaius and his wife had friends over at their house. During the gathering, they both ingested cocaine.

Krystin breastfed her child the next morning. After the breastfeeding, the baby became sluggish, which prompted the couple to take the child to Oro Valley Hospital. According to KVOA, the couple went to Banner-University Medical Center. At the medical center, the baby tested positive for cocaine.

It was also reported that the child is now in the custody of the Department of Child Safety.

“The facts are that these are excellent parents, the child was well taken care of, the child was never harmed and is responding beautifully,” said Mike Piccarreta, the lawyer representing Som Lisaius and his wife.
