Charges Against Butturinis Could Be Dropped

Loudon County (WVLT) The charges against a Loudon County couple accused of contributing and serving alcohol to underage people, could be dropped.

This morning in court, as part of a pre-trial deal, the prosecutors and attorneys for Jack and Kathrine Butturini agreed to pre-trial diversion.

According to prosecutors, if the Butturinis stay out of trouble, the charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor will be dropped on June 1st of 2008.

The Butturinis claim the underage drinkers were trespassing in their home and they did not provide alcohol to anyone underage during the May 12th party.

The 12 underage people caught drinking at the after-prom party were all given plea deals.
