Jonesboro Keg Party Mom Gets Three Months in Jail

MARCH 23, 2006 - Posted at 7:40 a.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - A Craighead County jury sentenced a woman to nearly three months in jail for having a keg party that teenagers attended at her home.

Tonya Curtis, 38, was sentenced in 2005 by District Judge Keith Blackman.  But she appealed that conviction, and Judge John Fogleman dismissed three counts.  A jury considered the 21 counts, and yesterday sentenced Curtis to 88 days in jail, a $2,100 fine, and 180 hours of community service.

Curtis was arrested last April after officers responded to a complaint about a party at her home and found two kegs containing beer, and about 90 teenagers at the home.
