Westborough parents accused of supplying alcohol to a teen at a house party last summer have agreed to complete community service and probation in exchange for their cases being dismissed after one year.
The Bjorks were each charged with one count of furnishing alcoholic beverages to a person under 21 after a hearing in October. Police said the Bjorks were home when their teen-age daughter hosted a party in August at their Gale Meadow Way home, where officers investigating a car accident found vomit, empty beer cans and red plastic cups in the road.
Police went to the home after an interviewing an 18 year old who had crashed his Pontiac into a Volvo on Haskell Street on his way home. The teen, who passed field sobriety tests, told them he had drunk three beers at the party.
The case will be dismissed on Dec. 19, 2007 as long as the Bjorks complete the terms of the deal and are not charged with a crime.
