UPDATE: According to court documents, Judith Anne Tetrealt, 55 of Lusby was arrested and charged with with:

  • Child Abuse 1st Degree
  • Child Abuse 2nd Degree
  • Assault 1st Degree
  • Poison/Attempt to Poison
  • Distribution of a Controlled Dangerous Substance
  • Neglect of a Minor

Tetrealt appeared before a District Court Commissioner and is currently being held on a no-bond status at the Calvert County Detention Center. Tetrealt will appear before a District Court Judge for a bail hearing. Tetrealt also has a preliminary court hearing set for March 13, 2017, in Prince Frederick District Court.

2/11/2017: On Friday February 10, 2017, the Maryland Department of Child Protective Services called the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office to report a child that appeared to have been poisoned.

Detectives learned that on February 9, 2017, a mother rushed a 1-year-old boy to Calvert Memorial Hospital.

An investigation determined the child had earlier been in the care of his grandmother in her Lusby residence. A short time after the mother picked the infant up he appeared to be very lethargic and was exhibiting symptoms of being poisoned. She immediately rushed the child to the emergency room. The medical staff began treating the infant by administering several doses of Naloxone. The infant was eventually transferred to the Georgetown University Medial Center for further evaluation.

It was determined the child was suffering from a methadone overdose. He was treated extensively for the overdose and was monitored for cardiac and respiratory issues. The medical staff listed the child in critical/acute status.

Based on the investigation the grandmother in this case has been charged on a warrant with Child Abuse 1st Degree, Assault 1st Degree, and Distribution of a Controlled Dangerous Substance.

The Grandmother was arrested on the warrant at her residence a short time ago without incident.

At this time Police are not releasing the name of the Grandmother.

    Lusby trash again! Does it ever stop. Let’s annex Lusby to Charles or PG counties.

      keep your own trash.

        Yes, you can keep your own trash…….

      That’s the problem with Lusby, they are all moving down there, because they can’t afford to live in PG and Charles County. Not everyone in Lusby is trash. Unfortunately it is everywhere in good old SOMD. At this point, drugs are an epidemic here, there is not a clean city anywhere .

      You are one ignorant individual! I suppose you live in a perfect county and everyone but you is trash.

        That is correct. Enjoy your fine ghetto living!

      I hope that people can see through your geographical bigotry. You must not like the Chesapeake Bay,wetlands,crabs,fishing,etc.

        With an inflammatory username like “Buck Wheat”, it’s obvious who the trash is.

      He who smelt it dealt it !

    • Spart on February 12, 2017 at 1:57 pm

      Lusby is one of the most beautiful areas I’ve ever been. I love the creeks and Chesapeake Bay shoreline. The mouth of the Patuxent River at Drum Point is nature at its best. The people of Lusby still exude So Md charm.

      • Steve on February 13, 2017 at 6:42 am

        Watching nature and the Drive Byes, So Md Lead!

    • Steve on February 13, 2017 at 6:40 am

      Its in Calvert why not annex all of Calvert to PG or Charles. Do you read? Its here so getting rid of something no matter how stupid will not help!

      Look around this place. Garbage is thrown everywhere on the side of the road. People act like they live in PG County!

      Not all Lusby is trash. My guess, you couldn’t afford some of the homes in the Lusby zip code.

      More like white trash, don’t blame all of Lusby for this Hillbilly.

    I know that this lady didn’t deliberately give this baby this drug.

      Then who did?

        It could have been accidental.

        • Thunderbird on February 13, 2017 at 5:26 pm

          Now, they just exude gas.

    • Big Cookie on February 12, 2017 at 5:01 pm

      Unless you were there, you don’t “know” anything. If this was an accident, why didn’t grandma call 9-1-1? Why didn’t she tell the mother there was a problem when the mother picked up the baby. This story stinks and should be fully investigated!

    • Susan Bollen on February 14, 2017 at 11:17 am

      It probably was accidental. But if you know your baby’s grandmother is on methadone, why the hell is she watching your baby? Has absolutely nothing with geography, people. And possibly nothing to do with intent. However, it happened and that baby could be dead regardless of intent or negligence.

    We don’t have the electric chair here, do we?

    What type of society have we degraded into? There is no excuse ever to hurt a child. Make sure if you have read this story that you follow it. Eventually the names will be released. Keep an eye on the proceedings and make sure the highest penalty is paid.

    • Spart on February 12, 2017 at 2:04 pm

      You sound just like Donald Trump, I bet you’re a politician.

        You sound like Donald Duck, because you sound like you are quackers!

        • Spart on February 14, 2017 at 3:07 pm

          You can’t stereotype a whole area just because you think that certain areas have a superior morality. You paint a picture of doom and gloom and make it sound like the whole area is horrible. Usually people like you have other motives otherwise why would you be so negative. What area do you think is so much better than Lusby? It sounds like you are the one who is very gloomy. You shouldn’t expect everyone to be as depressed as you seem to be.

    How about the child’s parent that left the child in the Grandmother’s care. You can’t tell me they didn’t know that she was unfit to care for the child.

  8. Anonymous on February 12, 2017 at 10:12 am

    Very sad situation for all involved. I highly doubt it was intentional. The mom isn’t any better. Poor baby

      Because she’s white I see the comments are so nice either way you look at it accidentally or not drugs should not be around children if you want to be ignorant do it on your own time

    Not really enough information to reach a conclusion on this one. Grandma obviously had a major pill or heroin habit at one point or maybe she is just addicted to methadone. What is unknown is whether or not she knowingly gave the medicine to the kid or was she just careless. I am suspicious because if the baby took a full pill the charges would be murder so maybe the grandma got tired of the kid crying and gave it a taste to shut it up. Again, all just speculation, we may or may not ever know what really happened.

    Held without bond? White privilege!

  12. Big Cookie on February 13, 2017 at 1:07 pm

    Looking at the list of charges, here is my guess for the outcome in court.

    Pleads guilty to the “Neglect of a child” charge and will NOT get any jail time.

    Prosecutor will “Nolle Pross” all the other charges and then list this case among their many
    wins / convictions in court.

    Anyone wanna bet?

  13. Teri on February 13, 2017 at 1:29 pm

    Is it possible that she dropped one of the pills and the baby got a hold of it? Being a grandmother myself, I can’t imagine this being done purposely. At least I hope not.

    • Big Cookie on February 17, 2017 at 11:47 am

      Teri,

      They don’t give out pills. It’s in the form of a syrup.

  14. Chip on February 13, 2017 at 1:50 pm

    First of all, who the hell has methadone just sitting around the house? Ahhh, if you’re pondering that question, NOBODY! You get it administered as part of a heroin addition rehab program. Notice I used the word “administered.” They don’t give you a prescription, pat you on the butt and then send you to the pharmacy. This old skank is a heroin addict. Whether she administered it to the child or, the child found it and consumed it, it doesn’t matter. If the police thought she administered it they probably would have charged her with attempted murder.

    • Big Cookie on February 17, 2017 at 11:46 am

      Chip,

      You may not be aware of how these programs run. The methadone is given to them in the form of a syrup and they can, and do, take it home. As you can see from the articles, this woman was given her methadone from a program up in Baltimore. You don’t think she drives up to Baltimore to get her fix, do you? They give her the syrup, pat her on the head and send her home. The program(s) that do this are a joke and a danger to all of us!

  15. anonymous on February 13, 2017 at 2:01 pm

    Because she’s white I see the comments aren’t as harsh. Regardless drugs should not be around children if you want to be a IDIOT be a IDIOT on your own time don’t even waste tax payers $$$ on a trial GUILTY!

    55? Looks more like 85. That’s what drugs will do to you. Hope the baby pulls through.

  17. Dianne caissie on February 13, 2017 at 4:24 pm

    One year old babies can’t walk to a fridge on their own let alone open the fridge door and open the methadone and then drink it. Think about it people. This was no accident.

  18. Keepin It Real on February 13, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    Looks like a reject from an ’80s hair metal band!

    No way that isn’t a dude!!!

  19. Smh on February 13, 2017 at 6:27 pm

    Gma seemed high every time I saw her. (Quite a few times in fact). The truth will be told.

  20. Save This Boy on February 15, 2017 at 2:36 pm

    Unfortunately, I do know this “Family” and both the “grandmother” and the “mother” are unfit to take care of ANYONE, let alone a small child. BOTH of them ONLY care about themselves, which has been proven time and time again. The “grandmother”, was never fit to be a caretaker in the first place, as her own children were taken away from her when they were very young. The “mother” is not the grandmother’s daughter and from what I understand the “mother”s own mother doesn’t want anything to do with her. Neither are fit to babysit, never mind raise this child. If there is ANY justice down in Mary’s Land, the child should be taken away and placed with relatives who can properly care for and raise the child. So sad for the little boy.

  21. Meeeeeee on February 18, 2017 at 10:38 am

    Just so you all know why is it’s always gotta be a white and black thing for one and methadone also comes in pill form not just liquid and it is also can be a prescription to treat it for pain so before you ones out here that have no clue what you’re talking about get your s*** straight… Another thing accidents do happen there for we do not know so stop judging this woman and her parents or whoever’s the point is if the grandmothers trying to get help office something that’s positive what has happened is tragedy and I hope and pray it is was not intentional but the truth always comes out trust and believe that…
