Stonington - A Pawcatuck youth who staged parties at an unoccupied Osbrook Point home, causing thousands of dollars in damage, was granted accelerated rehabilitation Monday in New London Superior Court.
If Cullen Faulise, 19, stays out of trouble until Oct. 2, 2015, the charges will be erased from his record.
He was also was ordered to pay $250 in restitution, abstain from alcohol and drugs, undergo counseling and treatment and have no contact with the owner of the home.
Police charged Faulise in May with first-degree criminal mischief, second-degree criminal trespass and sixth-degree larceny in connection with throwing parties this winter.
Police were called to the home in March 24 after owners came to check on the house and discovered the damage. They use the home on a limited basis.
Police said they found the entire home had been vandalized with dozens of holes up to 3 feet in diameter in the walls, and damage to floors, countertops, doors, thermostats and lights. A rug was burned in front of the fireplace.
There was also evidence of parties as smashed bottles, cups, cans, garbage and condoms were strewn about the home.
Items were also stolen from the house, which did not have any power, and partygoers had urinated and defecated in the house.
In preparing their arrest warrant, detectives interviewed numerous people who attended parties there or had knowledge of what occurred. Police determined Faulise was the ringleader and organizer of the parties, which were held on a regular basis as word about them spread.
A week after the first arrest, police charged Faulise with breaking into a Mystic garage and stealing beer. He was charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and sixth-degree larceny in connection with the incident on Hatch Street. Monday's disposition took care of both cases.
