A Stuarts Draft couple is facing charges for allegedly providing alcohol to a group of minors during a party at their home Friday night.

Bonnie Hamilton and Daniel Southard were arrested after sheriff's deputies arrived at the home to find seven minors under the influence of alcohol.

Deputies say the two were wondering why they were in trouble and reportedly didn't think it was a big deal to give alcohol to minors.

Lt. Glenn Hanger, Augusta County Sheriff's Office, says the two were responsible for the minors.

He says, "There is a certain amount of liability attached to what an individual might do as a result of you promoting them in committing a crime, such as the consuming or the possessing of alcohol."

There were a total of 20 people at the party, ranging in age from 12 to 22. The sheriff's office isn't releasing the ages of the minors who were intoxicated. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
