WAUKESHA (WKOW) – A Waukesha County couple
and their teenage son will pay reduced fines for hosting a drinking party that
led to a crash that killed three teens.
Prosecutors agreed to drop some of the 26
citations issued to Scott and Charlene Wetzel, of Pewaukee, and their son,
Jason, for supplying alcohol to underage guests last July.
District Attorney Brad Schimel says no
criminal charges could be filed because the guests were 18-years-old.
Three 18-year-olds who had been at the party
died after their car slammed into a tree in Delafield. All three of the victims were students at
Arrowhead High School.
According to the Journal Sentinel, Schimel
believes the total fine of $2,700 will be a substantial lesson for the
5727 Tokay Blvd., Madison, WI 53719
