police-new.jpgREYNOLDSVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – DuBois-based State Police say an infant was removed after being found in “deplorable conditions” in a residence in Reynoldsville Borough earlier this month.

Around 7:37 a.m. on July 16, DuBois-based State Police were contacted by an “anonymous” caller regarding a possible domestic altercation at a location on Grant Street Extension in Reynoldsville Borough, Jefferson County.

Police say upon their arrival, they made contact with 31-year-old Jamie Gilbert and 29-year-old Jacob Holben, both of Reynoldsville. It was determined that both individuals were under the influence of methamphetamine.

According to police, a seven-month-old infant was also located at the scene.

Police say the infant was “subject to deplorable conditions within the residence,” and was found with a soiled diaper in a crib in a separate bedroom. The child was subsequently removed from the residence by Jefferson County Children and Youth Services (CYS).

Multiple items of drug paraphernalia, as well as a small amount of marijuana, were also seized from the residence, police say.

Court documents indicate the following charges were filed against Gilbert and Holben through Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana’s office on July 22:

– Endangering Welfare of Children – Parent/Guardian/Other Commits Offense, Misdemeanor 1
– Marijuana-Small Amount Personal Use, Misdemeanor
– Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor (three counts)

Preliminary hearings are scheduled for 11:15 a.m. on August 20.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    https://www.explorejeffersonpa.com/police-infant-removed-after-being-found-in-deplorable-conditions-in-reynoldsville/

Court documents indicate the following charges were filed against 31-year-old Jaime Lynn Gilbert and 29-year-old Jacob Andrew Holben, both of Reynoldsville, through Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana’s office on July 22:

– Endangering Welfare of Children – Parent/Guardian/Other Commits Offense, Misdemeanor 1
– Marijuana-Small Amount Personal Use, Misdemeanor
– Use/Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor (three counts)

The charges stem from an incident on July 16 in Reynoldsville.

Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, Around 7:37 a.m. on July 16, DuBois-based State Police were contacted by an “anonymous” caller regarding a possible domestic altercation at a location on Grant Street Extension in Reynoldsville Borough, Jefferson County.

Police then responded to the scene and made contact with Jamie Gilbert and Jacob Holben.

According to the complaint, Holben admitted he and Gilbert had been using methamphetamine in the early morning hours and were arguing loud enough to alarm the neighbors. He allegedly noted that he smoked the methamphetamine through a glass light bulb, while Gilbert snorted it because smoking it “makes her sick.”

The complaint notes the couple’s infant son was located in an upstairs bedroom and was then relocated to the living room downstairs.

According to the complaint, Jefferson County Children and Youth Services (CYS) was then contacted based on the condition of the residence and the condition of Gilbert and Holben. CYS then conducted a walkthrough of the residence, along with police, during which several items of drug paraphernalia, including a broken light bulb containing methamphetamine residue, a green smoking pipe with marijuana residue, and a clear plastic cylinder of marijuana, were found in plain view.

The complaint states CYS then deemed the residence unfit, and an emergency custody agreement for the child was signed, and he was placed into emergency custody.

Preliminary hearings for the cases are scheduled for 11:15 a.m. on August 20.

I've seen a few folks on FB speaking on behalf of the couple, claiming they are good people and are now "clean."  How can you be called clean after just two weeks? 

I'm sorry but I'm of the opinion that once you become a parent, your life is about what's best for that child until he or she is out on their own.  That means you give up drugs and excessive drinking.  What if they got a bad batch of meth and ended up dead over it?  That happens.
