Couple Fined For Giving Booze To Teens


NAPERVILLE, Ill., (UPI) — An Illinois couple who admitted in court to allowing underage drinking at an after-prom party they hosted at their home were placed on court supervision.

Michael and Cathy Bushman, both 47, of Naperville were also fined $1,000 in Judge Mary O’Connor’s courtroom after pleading guilty under a city ordinance to permitting the consumption of alcohol by minors, the Sun-Times Media Network reported Monday.

Naperville police said they were investigating reports of damaged mailboxes in the Century Farms neighborhood and the investigation led them to discover the Bushmans had hosted an after-prom party late April 28 and early April 29. Police said the couple provided alcoholic beverages to the Naperville North High School students.

Police said 26 teenagers were ticketed April 29 for unlawful consumption of alcohol by minors.
