A man and woman from Olympian Village each have been charged with a felony after a test reportedly showed methamphetamine in their infant child’s system, according to court records.
Robert Shane Horn, 40, was charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of a child creating a substantial risk, and Kristin B. Horn, 33, was charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of a child involving drugs, each one a class D felony punishable by up to seven years in prison. The charges were filed Sept. 24, according to court papers.
The infant, who was 5 months old at the time, reportedly tested positive for meth after being admitted to St. Louis Children’s Hospital on Aug. 19. Both Robert and Kristin Horn allegedly told a Children’s Division case worker they had smoked meth with the child in their home, the probable-cause statement in the case said.
Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Grant Bissell said the infant was released from the hospital, and the child is not expected to suffer long-term effects from the alleged meth exposure.
A bond-appearance hearing for Robert Horn is set for 9 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, in front of Jefferson County Div. 12 Associate Circuit Judge Tony Manansala.
