St. Charles woman charged with hosting teen party
St. Charles police reported Friday they busted a large underage drinking party last weekend that resulted in social hosting charges against a 50-year-old woman.
Authorities said at least 71 juveniles ranging in age from 14 to 18 attended the party Nov. 2 at a home on the 200 block of Persimmon Drive. Four of the juveniles were charged with possession/consumption of alcohol by a minor. The homeowner, Lisa J. Lorenzini, was charged with social hosting — a city ordinance violation that could result in a fine of $250 to $500.
Police said they were dispatched to the house at 9:15 p.m. and upon arrival, they found numerous cars and juveniles in the area. As officers approached the house, a "large number" of juveniles left the house through the back door, while others escaped through windows. Additional officers came to the scene to keep the remaining subjects in the house, according to a news release.
Police were able to contact the parents of 65 of the teens who remained, and they were asked to pick up their children from the house.
A large number of beer cans were found in the house, police said.
