Former TV reporters Som and Krystin Lisaius took plea deals in Pima County Superior Court Tuesday, admitting to endangering their infant.

Both Lisaiuses pleaded guilty to one count of undesignated misdemeanor endangerment. They will be sentenced at a later date. They will next appear in court at 9 a.m. Oct. 3.

The charges stem from a May incident in Oro Valley, when cocaine was found in their then four-month-old child's system. The child is under Department of Child Services supervision.

Som Lisaius worked at KOLD before the incident, but is no longer with the company. Krystin Lisaius worked at KGUN9 briefly.

If the plea is accepted at sentencing, additional charges of child abuse and drug possession will be dropped.
