Police find 5 kids drunk and stoned, mom arrested [CO]

Mom, Aunt Charged After Kids Found Drunk, Smoking Pot
July 11, 2005 - denverpost.com

Colorado Springs police officers found five children ages 9 to 16 drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana at home with their mother and aunt Saturday night.

Felony delinquency charges were filed against the mother, Jerianne Garcia, 35, and her sister, Melissa Collins, 39.

All the children were drunk and vomiting when officers Jennifer Lewis and Charles Szatkowski discovered them at 11:45 p.m., police said.

The 9-year-old had a blood-alcohol level of 0.16, police said, well above the 0.08 level at which Colorado drivers are considered intoxicated. The others had blood-alcohol levels between 0.10 and 0.15.

The 16-year-old was a veteran of a drug rehabilitation program, according to the police report.

"The 9-year-old could quote the percentage of alcohol in each drink, and had a cure for hangovers," the report noted.

The children were taken to Memorial Hospital for treatment. They were back home by Sunday morning.

"Contributing to the delinquency of a minor is a felony that we don't charge very often," said Colorado Springs police Sgt. Everett Purdue.

"Parents, in the privacy of their own home, can serve alcoholic beverages, for example, a glass of wine with a meal, to their child. That's not against the law," Purdue said.

"What is against the law is when you serve them to the point where they're dangerously intoxicated," he said. "In this case, serving that much alcohol to someone not accustomed to drinking could very easily kill him."

We cannot smoke a joint in the privacy of our own home, but we can illegaly provide alcoholic beverages to a minor. So we can break some laws and it's OK, but others we can't? I would like the US Attorney's office to provide me with a list of laws that are OK to break and ones that are not.

how do two police officers discover you while you are in your own home? they were all vomiting when they came in? shiiit. its like that last family guy episode where peter, brian, stewie, and chris are having a contest to see who can drink the most ipicac without throwing up. then they are all just sitting around throwing up. yeah.. haah its never funny when you explaine a funny part in real life to people who didn't see it much less typing it. damn

Really? I didn't know that...

I'm curious where this comes from because I doubt the line is drawn there.
