DANIELSON, Conn. (AP) _ A former Killingly teacher and cheerleading coach who is accused of hosting an underage drinking party at her home has applied for a special form of probation that could clear her criminal record.

Karen Rubino appeared Wednesday in Danielson Superior Court and asked to be admitted into the state’s Accelerated Rehabilitation program. A judge is expected to rule on the request on Aug. 11.

Police say they broke up a party at Rubino’s Brooklyn home on March 4 where eight people under age 21 were allegedly drinking.

She was charged with eight misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment and ticketed for permitting a minor to possess alcohol. School officials placed her on administrative leave, and she retired at the end of the school year.
