Dad: Mom's drug abuse endangering my child

Posted at 8:30 PM, Oct 14, 2015

CINCINNATI — A mom accused of shooting up heroin just before driving with her child in the car is now accused of using again.

Now, the father of her child is speaking out, saying he’s intervening for the safety of his 5-year-old son.

Bobbie Cizek, 30, appeared in court in August on charges of child endangerment and possession after police say officers found her high on heroin and in possession of a needle, syringe and spoon with her child in the car.

While a judge ultimately dismissed the charges and put her on probation and electronic monitoring, court records indicate Cizek was back in court again Wednesday after her probation officer said she failed a drug test.

After Wednesday's hearing, Cizek was released again, on the same probationary terms.

Nathan Mayes, the father of one of Cizek’s children, said he’s worried that, if something isn’t done, his son could lose more than just his innocence.

“It angers me, the fact that my 5-year-old son knows what heroin is,” Mayes said. “(She) placed my son in harm’s way. What if (she) would have gotten robbed? What if there had been a shooting or what if (she) would have wrecked the car?”

While Cizek’s attorney said that she is working on her rehabilitation program, Mayes said he thinks the court system has gone too easy on Cizek.

“Yeah, she needs help, but they’re not giving her the right kind of help,” Mayes said. “They’re slapping her on the wrist and throwing her back on the street.”

Mayes said he is taking legal action to acquire full custody of his son.
