BOSTON (CBS) – A 74-year-old professor who has lectured at Boston schools for two decades has been charged with running a methamphetamine lab.

Irina Kristy, who teaches math at Boston University and Suffolk University, will be arraigned next month for allegedly running a meth lab out of her Somerville home.

Kristy’s son Grigory pleaded not guilty to the same charges last month.

Kristy has been placed on administrative leave at both Suffolk and Boston University.

    Going to a math professor for meth makes about as much sense as getting dental surgery from carpenter.
    But then I expect that a chemistry professor wouldn’t be stupid enough to get caught at it.

    I think we are all better off with drugs that come from plants: coffee etc. and codeine (last time I read it couldn’t be synthesized in a lab) LOL!!
    amphetamines can’t be broken down by the body easily and the high PH means the kidneys can’t get rid of it; this stuff will turn you into a total loser very fast.

    Sheesh, listening to people talk about this case makes me wonder if I missed the trial! Does this sound familiar: “Innocent until proven guilty” ??
