Over a dozen teens who were charged with underage drinking following an investigation by the Woodbury Police Department of a keg party at 923 Reed Court on March 13 appeared in Cannon County Juvenile Court on Tuesday, April 12.
The teens, a majority of whom were boys, were mostly between the ages of 16 and 17.
Due to their age, The Cannon Courier does not identify the defendants by name.
Some of the teens, who were accompanied by a parent or parents, entered guilty pleas before Judge Susan Melton. They were placed on probation for six months and those who had driver's license lost that privilege for a period of one year.
One of the teens pled not guilty, while others either requested an attorney, or asked to speak with the district attorney to see if a plea deal could be reached. Those cases were reset for May 10.
An 18-year-old in attendance, Angel M. Roy, who was charged with underage possession of alcohol, had her case continued for 12 months subject to good and lawful behavior. The charge will be dismissed if all conditions are met.
Two adults allegedly involved in the incident appeared in Cannon County General Sessions Court earlier in the day.
Kimberly Ann Besner, of 923 Reed Court. charged with 15 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, was appointed an attorney and her case was reset for May 10.
Roy Michael Foust, of 4601 Jim Cummings Highway, charged with 15 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and felon in possession of a handgun, was reset for May 10.
