From The Smoking Gun:
FEBRUARY 12–If you follow up the “dirty dancing” contest at your daughter’s 12th birthday party with a field trip to Thirsty Jake’s to get the kids some booze, don’t be surprised if you end up in cuffs. And that’s exactly what happened to an Ohio man who pleaded guilty Monday to eight counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor in connection with the January 31 all-nighter described in the below Newark Police Division report. Jeffrey Yingling, 52, threw the party and made the booze run with several partygoers in tow–none of whom was over the age of 13. According to a statement given to cops by one 12-year-old girl, she nagged Yingling to score them some brew and offered to “be his kid if he bought some beer.” Yingling, who has four prior DUI convictions, copped his misdemeanor pleas in Licking County Common Pleas Court, where he is scheduled to be sentenced later this month. He faces a maximum of four years in prison.
