Mom Charged With Hosting Teen Drinking Party

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A judge has rejected a probation program for a Guilford mother accused of hosting a party where several teens drank alcohol and one of them had to be hospitalized.

New Haven Superior Court Judge Maureen Keegan denied Kelly Krasnow’s request for accelerated rehabilitation Monday, saying the case was too serious. The program for first-time offenders can result in charges being dismissed after a probation period.

Keegan noted that four children passed out at the party because they were so drunk.

Krasnow’s lawyer, William Dow III, said Krasnow hosted a birthday party for her daughter on New Year’s Eve 2013 and made a mistake by failing to adequately monitor the children.

Krasnow is charged with permitting a minor to illegally possess alcohol, risk of injury to a minor and other crimes.
