Brock Parker. Boston Globe “Former Arlington selectwoman Annie LaCourt and her husband [Mark Burstein] pleaded not guilty in Cambridge District Court in Medford Friday to charges stemming from an alleged underage drinking party at their home in October.” Wicked Local Arlington “In all, LaCourt and Burstein face 33 counts of furnishing alcohol to persons under 21, as well as three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, for which they were arraigned in juvenile court earlier this week.” MyFOX Boston 25 News “Police said they saw young people who appeared to be drunk leaving the couple’s home after a party in October. When officers went to the home they said they saw it was full of teenagers who were drinking from plastic cups and beer cans.” Wicked Local Arlington “Breathalyzer tests revealed 21 of the teens had consumed alcohol, police said. Officers provided medical attention to some and took all the youths to a staging area at Stratton School, where their parents were called to pick them up. Some face criminal charges and others are participating in the Juvenile Diversion Program, which diverts young offenders with no prior criminal record away from the court system.” Arlington Patch “They were arraigned earlier this week in Cambridge Juvenile Court on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor (three counts). Cambridge District Court Judge Michele Hogan released the defendants on personal recognizance. The defendant’s next court date is January 30, 2013 for a pre-trial hearing.”
