Trial For Woman Accused Of Providing Alcohol To Minors Pushed Back

May 10, 2005 -- Posted at 9:45 p.m. CDT

JONESBORO -- Last month, the Street Crimes Unit of the Jonesboro Police Department responded to a complaint at the home of Tonya Curtis.

Police say when they arrived there were around eighty teenagers, kegs, and indications that money had been paid to get inside.

Tonya Curtis was taken into custody.

Among the charges against her, knowingly furnishing or selling alcohol to minors.

"Obviously this is an unfortunate situation and I don't know of anyone that would say that it is an appropriate situation to be in, or the way things happened were good in any shape, form, or fashion," said Martin Lilly.

Martin Lilly is Curtis' attorney.

He says there are a lot of facts about this case that are not known, but will probably come out at the hearing.

He says it won't justify what happened, but might shed some light on how the party started.

"Although it was a substantial situation in terms of the number of people, I don't think anyone set out for it to be that big. I think it all just snowballed," said Lilly.

Lilly says what exactly happened, and why it happened, will come out in court.

"The judge, the court, and the public for that matter, will determine how serious it actually was. Once again, there were a lot of people there, and we can't throw one person under the bus for everybody's conduct," said Lilly.
