Hingham: Scituate lawyer avoids charges for drinking party

A prominent Boston-area defense attorney accused of being at home the night her teenage daughter hosted a drinking party will not face charges as long as she stays out of trouble.

A clerk magistrate in Hingham District Court on Wednesday took Tracy Miner’s case under advisement after a 90-minute closed-door hearing and decided not to issue a criminal complaint.

If Miner avoids any legal trouble for six months, the case will be dropped.

Miner could have faced charges of furnishing alcohol to minors.

Police responding to her Scituate home early on Jan. 1 say they saw teens scatter from the home. Upon entering, police say they saw beer cans, liquor bottles and pizza boxes and smelled marijuana.

Miner said outside court: “I trust the justice system. I work in it.”
