Suffolk Prof. and Son Face Meth Lab Charges
Suffolk University's very own Math Professor, Irina Kristy, 74, and her son, Grigory Genkin, 29, were both recently suspected of conspiring to cook and distribute methamphetamine, commonly known as Crystal Meth. According to court documents the mother and son duo, were creating and selling Meth from their duplex in Somerville.
The evidence that the Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.) gathered from the duplex are ingredients commonly used when making Meth. The list includes: solvents, cold medicine, and reactive liquids in old Snapple bottles. (Being a student of Professor Kristy myself, this evidence is shocking, because she has never taught a class this semester where she wasn't drinking from Snapple bottles. It helps paint an image of how true this evidence could be.) The D.E.A declared that there were so many chemicals being stored to make large quantities of Crystal Meth on the second floor of the apartment that "dry food items" were stored in the refrigerator, to make room for the Meth ingredients.
On Monday, November 14th, Somerville District Court charged Genkin with distribution of Crystal Meth, conspiracy to violate the drug laws and drug violation near a school. The Prosecutor of the case will soon be filing a criminal complaint against Professor Irina Kristy.
Suffolk University has not made a comment on the case so far.
*UPDATE - 12/7/11*
Irina Kristy has been put on administrative leave and outlook is doubtful regarding her return to Suffolk.
