Cops: Mom hosted alcohol, pot party for teens

Jamie Sebestyen

A Pear Park mother told deputies she hosted a party where minors had access to alcohol and marijuana because she believed things would be “safer at her home,” according to an arrest affidavit.

Jamie Sebestyen, 36, posted bond after her arrest in the predawn hours of Saturday on suspicion of three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, all of which started as a loud party complaint to the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office from a resident in the 500 block of 31 1/2 Road.

Deputies heard loud, “slurred” voices and loud music when they pulled up around 12:46 a.m. to 516 31 1/2 Road, unit 107, and were greeted at the door by an underage man unsteady on his feet and smelling of alcohol, the affidavit said.

Deputies identified three boys, ages 17 to 16, who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol.

A marijuana grinder was observed on a coffee table, which Sebestyen said belonged to her and she denied giving any to the minors. One boy at the party said he did get some marijuana from her, but the others denied smoking any, the affidavit said.

Sebestyen told deputies the children’s parents had knowledge and approved their children being there. Those parents, however, told deputies “they had no idea” what was going on, the affidavit said.

“Jamie told me she felt it best to provide a place for the juveniles to consume alcohol at her home rather than someplace else, stating that she believed it was safer at her home,” the affidavit said.

Sebestyen said she’d had one drink but appeared unsteady.

“It should be noted that I had to hold her steady while I placed her in handcuffs so she did not fall,” the affidavit said.
