BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A former Easton mother accused of hosting a party for high school students who were encouraged to drink alcohol and have sex has been granted special probation.

Hearst Connecticut Media Group reports that Eliane Mullen of Greenwich on Tuesday was granted accelerated rehabilitation, a program for first-time, nonviolent offenders. Mullen did not plead guilty to the 10 counts of risk of injury to a minor pending but instead was placed on two years’ probation.

The charges will be dismissed if she commits no other crimes during probation.

Mullen’s lawyer said she is happy to finally put the incident behind her.

Mullen had said the April 18 party “got out of hand,” but police said she bought vodka, whiskey and a six pack of beer. Police also said Mullen supplied a condom to two teens.
