A St. Louis Park woman is accused of giving hard cider to a group of minors in her home on the 1800 block of Parker Lane.
Heather Marie Cicharz, 43, is charged with one gross misdemeanor count of furnishing alcohol to minors for the Oct. 19 incident.
The father of two of the boys present came into the St. Louis Park Police Department on Oct. 22 to report the incident.
The evening of Oct. 19, Cicharz provided a group of minors with one bottle each of Angry Orchard hard cider, the sons told police.
She then asked the group not to tell anyone, emphasizing that they “only had one” drink, according to the criminal complaint.
The older of the man’s two sons said that a bottle of Kinky Vodka was passed around later in the evening with Cicharz’ permission.
Cicharz told police she had minors at her home on Oct. 19, but she denied serving them alcohol.
St. Louis Park police Lt. Lori Dreier said the case is still being investigated and she could not share the nature of the relationship between Cicharz and the minors or the age of the minors present.Cicharz faces up to a year behind bars and a $3,000 fine.
