Meth Lab Charges Dropped Against 74-Year-Old College Professor

BOSTON (CBS) – All charges against a 74-year-old college professor previously accused of running a methamphetamine lab at her Somerville home have been dropped.

Irina Kristy was cited by Somerville Police in December, but the Middlesex County District Attorney’s office decided last week not to pursue charges.

Meth lab charges are still pending against Kristy’s son, Grigory Genkin, who is due back in court for a probable cause hearing on Feb. 29.

Kristy, who has taught in the city for two decades, had been placed on leave at Boston University and Suffolk University after the charges were brought against her.

Kristy will not be teaching at BU this semester. Her future plans at the school are unclear, a BU spokesperson said.

    “Her future plans at the school are unclear.”

    How about the old bag retiring? Give your spot up to an aspiring young teacher who needs it more.

    Why? When writing this story, wouldn’t you think people would wonder why they were dropped and perhaps address it? Even if it’s not clear as to why they were dropped. They lived in the house together, did she not know what was going on?

    Maybe she’s related to Sen Tierney. Hey, he lived in the same house as his wife and didn’t know she was laundering money for her brother!!! Maybe she thought the Smell was the new Re-Nuzit in the basement!!!! Anyway I’m sure Harvard would love to have her!!!
