Meet 25 y/o Christina Cherry, mother of a 2nd grade girl and her 24 y/o live-in beau, Kevin Richardson. That’s the not so happy couple below… in their mugshots…
On Thursday, February 2nd, 2017 Christina’s daughter, one of two children that she reportedly lives with, was in class at Boutte Christian Academy (which is less than 30 miles from New Orleans and is pictured below) when the unexpected happened.
The girl reportedly reached into her book bag, pulled out a pocket pack of tissues, unwittingly discovered an unusual baggie inside the tissue pack and handed the baggie directly over to her teacher (who saw that it contained a small amount of a white substance and immediately called police). Narcotics detectives from the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office quickly arrived at the school to investigate, tested the substance and, when they realized who the young girl’s mother was they were not surprised at all when the white substance proved to be methamphetamine.
Why were the cops not surprised? Well it’s because Sheriff’s Deputies had been investigating Christina’s boyfriend for suspicion of selling meth since November of 2016. Narcotics detectives believe that the young girl likely picked the baggie up from inside of the tissue pack well in advance of February 2nd, without realizing what she was carrying into school.
Sheriff’s Deputies were able to secure a search warrant for the home (pictured below) and when they arrived both Christina and Kevin were at home, with the two minor children that reside there (It is unknown who the other child is), and Deputies report that Christina tried to get rid of some of the drugs when they arrived (earning her a charge of “obstruction” – which we call “tampering” in FL – as well as charges for possession and two counts of illegal drug use in the presence of juveniles). Kevin was charged with possession with intent to distribute, possessing paraphernalia and two counts of illegal drug use in the presence of juveniles.
Now Christina and Kevin can prove that the couple that commit crimes together stay together…
Memo to Christina and Kevin: Do all the dope you want. Manufacture it. Use it. Sell it. Bathe in it for all I care. Provided that you do not have children around.
Memo to Christina and Kevin continued: Seriously, I’m not here to judge you and I do not care if you live to be 1,000 or die tomorrow. What I do care about (as I suspect your Judge and prosecutor will care about) are the kids who’s lives you are going to f*ck up because of your selfishness. If Arthur Fonzerelli were here he would say “Uncool… way uncool”.
