DeJesus, the mother of the baby who ingested a baggie of fentanyl still has custody of that baby and his twin brother
The Rochester mother of an infant who swallowed a bag of fentanyl was arraigned Thursday morning.
Angeline DeJesus, along with the child's grandparents, Bartolomeo Blackburn and Edaliz Torres, are all charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Emergency crews responded to a home on Roycroft Drive Sunday. Firefighters were able to get the baggie out of the child's throat, but the baby still had to be taken to the hospital and given Narcan for an overdose.
The 9-month-old was discharged from Rochester General Hospital Wednesday.

According to court paperwork she knew her mom and uncle were heroin users but chose to live with them.
"Inside his mouth I found a small, clear, zip-lock baggie. It was a heroin baggie and looked like it was mostly empty...Both my mom and "uncle" use heroin and live in the same house as me. One of them must have dropped a bag in the playpen" -statement from mother of 9 month-old pic.twitter.com/UJKIMkcTgR— Jennifer Lewke (@WHEC_JLewke) June 7, 2018
In her statement to police she admits “I know the house is unsafe for kids because of the heroin and needles, so I’m trying to move.”
The ADA says she has since moved and that’s why they’re allowing her custody with constant CPS supervision.
