BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

A Butler County man has admitted to lacing brownies with marijuana and feeding them to his 79-year-old mother.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office was contacted by Adult Protective Services after a healthcare worker became ill on Wednesday after eating a brownie at the woman's home, police said.

The healthcare worker said that the 79-year-old woman told her that the brownies were made by her son, Kurtis Lee Kemper. After eating the brownie, the home healthcare worker became violently ill and was rushed to the emergency room, officials said. 

Officials told the worker that she had ingested marijuana. 

"She is a sweetheart," said Rick Johnson, a neighbor of the 79-year-old woman. " A nice person and she didn't know what that stuff is. She doesn't know what pot is."

Kemper, 45, admitted to police that he made the marijuana laced brownies and served them to his mother without her knowledge. 

"This is as low as it gets," Sheriff Richard Jones said. "That a son would jeopardize the health and welfare of his own mother and the home healthcare professional that is simply there to do her job, is just pathetic."

He is charged with two counts of corrupting another with drugs and booked into the Butler County jail.
