Resident Charged for Hosting Underage Drinking Party

As reported at on Jan. 18, Kelly Ann Krasnow, 48, of 57 Ironwood Road, turned herself in at police headquarters after learning she was wanted on charges relating to allegations that she hosted, and was aware of, a party in her home on New Year's Eve involving several juveniles consuming alcohol, some to the point of becoming unconscious and requiring hospitalization.

According to police, officers responded to Krasnow's Ironwood Road home at 1:37 a.m. on New Year's Day, Jan. 1. Police arrived after receiving a 911 call from the parents of one of the juveniles at the party, who was unresponsive. The parents had arrived at the home to check on their child's well-being, after first attempting to contact their child without success. When police arrived, they located several other juveniles in the home in "various states of intoxication," according to the police report.

The unresponsive youth reported by the parents was transported by ambulance to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment. The ages of all juveniles involved were not provided by police. Sgt. Sandra Brooks-Coppola was in charge of the investigation. Officer Nicole Gerosa was the lead officer, assisted by Officer Lawrence Ruggiero.

On Jan. 18, police charged Krasnow with permitting a minor to possess alcohol, risk of injury to a child, reckless endangerment in the first degree, and interfering with an officer. Krasnow was released on a promise to appear in New Haven Superior Court on Jan. 22. The case has since been continued to Feb. 8.
