A Franklin woman faces misdemeanor charges after police there said they found 11 minors drinking at a party in the Fieldstone Farms subdivision Friday night.
Franklin police, who said they received calls from neighbors complaining of loud music, responded to Kimberly Jill Benson’s home at 6 Prescott Place around 10:45 p.m. Friday. Eleven underage children between the ages of 15 and 17 were allegedly drinking alcohol.
The children were charged with unlawful consumption of alcohol, and Benson, 44, who was home during the party, was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Earlier on Friday, police warned Benson of the consequences of allowing children to drink and use drugs at her home after they received calls from concerned parents that a party was planned there that night.
According to Franklin police, the home also smelled of burnt marijuana, but police were told the minors who smoked the marijuana left as officers arrived.
Benson is due in court on Sept. 2 and faces up to 11 months and 29 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,500.
