Mo. mom accused of giving alcohol to young teens
AP - March 31, 2009 6:06:37 PM

APA mother and another woman face felony child-endangerment charges after a 14-year-old's birthday party that ended with two young teens being taken to a hospital. Karen Christine Downs, 43, of Kansas City, and Kelsee Guest, 25, are accused of providing liquor and beer to six 13- and 14-year-olds at a February birthday party for Downs' daughter. Two girls, one 13 and the other 14, passed out and were later taken to a hospital, according to court documents.

Downs allegedly offered $10 to whoever could chug a glass of vodka the fastest. Guest is accused of pouring the shots.

"We continue to work to educate teenagers and adults about the dangerous effects of teen drinking," Platte County prosecutor Eric Zahnd in a news release. "But understand this: It is a crime to give alcohol to somebody's child. And any adult who creates a substantial risk to the life, body, or health of a child can face felony charges."

Police responded to a complaint of a loud party at a home in northern Kansas City around 2 a.m. Feb. 22 and found the teenage girls, several of whom told investigators that they had been drinking heavily. One girl who was unconscious was taken to a hospital, where her blood content was later determined to be .218, more than twice the legal limit to operate a motor vehicle.

A second girl also was taken to the hospital because officers believed she had alcohol poisoning.

"This was a very serious and dangerous situation," Kansas City police Chief Jim Corwin said. "We are fortunate we are not standing here discussing a homicide."

Officers found between 60 and 70 empty beer bottles and several empty liquor bottles scattered throughout the home's basement.

The girls told officers that Downs offered them shots and told them not to tell their parents about it. After running out of alcohol, Guest asked the girls if they had any money to buy more, Zahnd said, and the two suspects and one of the girls then bought another bottle of vodka.

Got drunk for the first time in Vegas when I was 12. Scotch or whiskey was the culprit. :-°

My first time drunk was at age 18 in my fraternity at college. I remember these two girls decided to take care of me, because I (apparently) looked pretty miserable. They walked me around campus, in my underwear as the story goes, to sober me up. I was pretty funny and had some pretty good one-liners that night, so they tell me. I remember none of it.

I must not have been too annoying, because I ended up marrying one of those girls. :-D ;-D

Heh, my first week of college, I took a tour of campus/town in my underwear, sleepwalking (well, drunken passed-outwalking).

Good job on marrying one of them! Does she bring that story up whenever you're popping the barley sodas a bit too freely?

No, she just gives me this kind of tired, disgusted look. Because I drink too much SO often.... like once a year, tops, but that's too often for her.

I've seriously been "drunk" like ten times in my life. I drink enough to get philosophical and wordy about twice a year, and the rest I just have one or two beers at a time. Wine though - I'll drink a whole bottle in an evening, but that's not much when you consider four glasses over the course of five-six hours. Still, I get "the look" when I drink wine or beer two nights in a row. She's a prude. :-b O:-)
