• Attleboro couple accused of giving pot-laced brownies to children


    ATTLEBORO, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A 39-year-old father and his girlfriend are accused of giving two children brownies laced with marijuana.

    Christopher Desimone and his girlfriend, Ann Marie Farrow, 28, were arraigned Monday on charges of reckless endangerment of a child and distributing marijuana, the Sun Chronicle reports.

    Desimone and Farrow are accused of giving pot brownies to Desimone's 8 and 11-year-old children. The 11-year-old reportedly only ate crumbs from the brownies, but the youngest child took a bite out of one.

    According to the newspaper, the couple was arrested Friday after a complaint was filed by the children's biological mother. The mother took the youngest child to a doctor after learning she took a bite of the brownie. Prosecutors claim test results came back positive for marijuana.

    A lawyer for Desimone claimed his client was outside grilling and did not know the brownies were laced with marijuana. Farrow's lawyer claimed neither charge applied and there was no probable cause to charge her.

    Farrow was ordered held on $500 cash bail. Desimone was held on $1,000 bail. Both are due back in court on April 22.
