Scituate:Lawyer in trouble for teen party

SCITUATE, Mass. (AP) – A prominent Boston-area defense attorney could face charges in connection with an alcohol-fueled New Year’s Eve party at her South Shore home hosted by her teenage daughter.

Tracy Miner, known for her successes in white-collar crime cases, will be summoned to court to determine whether there is enough evidence to charge her with furnishing alcohol to minors under the state’s social host law.

Police and firefighters responded to her Scituate home early Jan. 1 to reports of an unconscious male. Police say they saw teens scatter from the home. Upon entering, police say they saw beer cans, liquor bottles and pizza boxes and smelled marijuana.

Police say the 54-year-old Miner came downstairs, said she had been sleeping, and asked what was going on.

A spokeswoman for her law firm refused comment.
