Probation for woman charged with hosting drug party

A Georgia parent who was taken onto custody in April 2015 following a party at her home, where her teenage daughter and friends were drinking and smoking marijuana, has pleaded guilty to six counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The Evans resident was sentenced to six years of probation, according to reports. The woman must also pay a $600 fine, amounting to $100 for each count, and is required to undergo routine drug and alcohol testing as part of her probation.

News sources report that the woman qualified for reduced sentencing under the state's First Time Offenders Act. She had no prior felony charges, and her guilty plea may result in the sealing of her record once she completes probation under the law.

The charges stemmed from an incident last year where the woman, whose age was not reported, allowed a group of minors to have a party at her home that involved drug and alcohol use. Reports indicated that the woman encouraged the teens to get naked and also showed them sexually explicit photos. Authorities learned about the party from the woman's Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor, who told police that the woman had spoken about the party.

While the woman in this incident was spared a stint in jail, child endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor are serious crimes that could net jail time, as well as fines, upon conviction. The long-term consequences of felony convictions involving minors may be also significant and negatively impact one's life, so those facing similar charges may wish to seek legal representation from an attorney with experience in criminal law matters.
