Mother of baby who tested positive for cocaine indicted
The mother of a baby who tested positive for cocaine in June has been indicted in the Mahoning County Court of Common Pleas.
According to the indictment, 36-year-old Rose Geisler created "a substantial risk to the health of [her child] by violating a duty of care, protection or support," which is a third degree felony.
The indictment went on to say that the incident resulted in "serious physical harm" to the baby, who is approximately five months old at this time.
In June of 2022, Geisler's son who was three months old at the time was taken to Akron Children's Hospital in Boardman after she found him with vomit on his onesie and breathing abnormally.
Geisler told Youngstown Police that her brother had stayed at their home a few days prior to the incident and that he "may have had cocaine on his hands" when he touched her son.
Geisler is charged with Child Endangerment.
