Talent mom, boyfriend charged with 'getting blasted' with teens
A Talent couple face felony charges after they allegedly taught teens in their home how to smoke marijuana using a bong, then sent text messages about “getting blasted” with the juveniles.
Lindsey Ann Monda, 38, and Jason Michael Dunn, 46, of the 400 block of Arnos Road, were charged by a grand jury Thursday for allegedly administering marijuana to two 13-year-olds in the home last month, along with lower-level felony charges of delivering marijuana to a person under the age of 21, according to documents filed in Jackson County Circuit Court.
Under Oregon law, administering marijuana to a person younger than 18 is a Class A felony, and unlawfully delivering marijuana to a person younger than 21 is a Class C felony.
In affidavits filed in court, Talent police described the juveniles as Monda’s children.
At about 8 p.m. Dec. 23, Monda allegedly sent text messages to a friend about “getting blasted” with the juveniles “and teaching ‘em how to use a bong.”
About 90 minutes later, Monda sent another message to the same friend in which she allegedly described Dunn loading one of the juveniles “a full bowl that she took to the dome without us.”
In the 9:30 p.m. text, Monda allegedly described her daughter as “totally blazed,” and called it “hilarious,” the court documents say.
When police later questioned the juveniles about the incident, they allegedly were able to describe the gray glass bong they used, which matched one police found in the home when the couple were arrested Tuesday afternoon.
Monda and Dunn were booked into the jail Tuesday and released Wednesday after posting 10 percent bonds on bail set at $20,000, court records show. As a condition of release, they were ordered not to contact the children except through the Department of Human Services.
