Woman accused of allowing teens to drink, smoke pot at party

A Roane County woman is accused of letting a group of teenagers drink and smoke marijuana at a party at her house last September.

Kimberly Lynn Hall, 47, of Harriman is charged with eleven counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor after a birthday party at her home on September 21.

According to court documents, the Department of Children's Services interviewed six of the teens who attended the party individually, and got basically the same story out of all of them. They claimed that Hall allowed them to drink alcohol and smoke pot at her home. They said she was the only adult at the party.

Hall told investigators that the kids brought their own alcohol, a 12 pack of beer, and that she didn't provide it. She also said she didn't know they were smoking marijuana because she has no sense of smell because of a facial injury. Investigators said she could provide no medical proof of that injury.

According to the report, Hall told investigators, "she should have called the police while the juvenile's unruly actions were taking place instead of allowing it to happen."

The report also claims that one of the teens who helped with the investigation tried to commit suicide as a result of bullying by the other teens.
