All four adults are recent graduates from Summit High School.Joe Weaver, 23, the only adult of legal drinking age in attendance at the party, has not been implicated in the incident.”At this point in time, it appears no charges will be brought (against Weaver), but that remains under investigation,” Romeo said.The court summonses have been delivered to the Frisco Police Department, which will give them to the defendants’ respective attorneys pending court intake of the case. The defendants’ first court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 5.The allegations are that the group was involved in stealing alcohol from Frisco Town Hall. That alcohol later showed up at the party inside a condominium at Main Street Station in Breckenridge.Breckenridge police officers busted the Aug. 5 party after receiving a noise complaint and ticketed 10 underage drinkers.Weaver, who was the assistant girls high school basketball coach last season, fell from the room’s third-floor balcony sometime after police arrived at the party. He was airlifted to a Denver hospital and later released.The maximum penalty for the class four felony burglary charge is two to six years in prison and a $2,000 to $500,000 fine. The maximum penalty for the misdemeanor charge is three to 12 months in county jail and a $250 to $1,000 fine.Nicole Formosa can be reached at (970) 668-3998 ext.229, or at email@example.com
