NK Woman Busted for Hosting Teen Party

A North Kingstown woman and lawyer is facing charges under the state's social host law for allegedly hosting a drinking party with dozens of teenagers in her home.

Police said Jayne Donegan was arrested and charged with simple assault, obstruction of justice and procuring alcohol for minors.

Police reports show police responded to Donegan's Wilbert Way home at around 9:30 p.m. Saturday after neighbors complained of teens urinating in public and drinking.

NBC10 reported that officers saw dozens of cars parked in the area and teenagers running every which way towards the woods when they arrived.

At the scene, Donegan was reportedly belligerant and tried to slam the door shut as officers knocked and screamed "You can't be in my house. I'm an attorney and I know my rights."

Some of the teens were so drunk, police felt they needed immediate medical attention.

See NBC10 for more details.

all you opinionated ass people can comment about how she should be jailed, her company should reevaluate her position there and yada yada yada….but guess what? at the end of the day, she's going to go to court in her luxury $80,000 car, wearing her thousand dollar designer suite and then proceed to leave court and return to her million dollar home….and shortly thereafter she'll most likely do some retail therapy with her children and spend what you make in two weeks on some clothes. ask yourselves, how many single moms do you know that are pulling that off? leave the elite be, and focus on yourselves

Her case is disintegrating all around her. The state police have refused to investigate the NK Police. She should and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Law enforcement and judges hate arrogance, especially when it comes from someone with a sense of entitlement. If Textron were a conscientious organization, she would be put on leave, then upon her return assign her to "special projects". The office of "special projects" is usually right next to the rear exit door, if you catch my drift. That is usually how we executives release other execs who have worn out their welcome.

Dark star - do tell! What facts do you have to support your statement that "Her case is disintegrating all around her"? Do you have direct knowledge that "She....will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law"? I haven't seen anything in the press that shows that happening, nor do I see anything that indicates that the NKPD is still pursuing this. What facts do you have?
CompassCarrier March 22, 2014 at 08:03 AM
Hooray! The Return of Gladys Dixin! Gladys: You don't need to look in the press to see if this is still being pursued; you need to look at the court records.

dear dark star, please look up what "personal recognizance" means before you go around judging people you don't know. at the worst, she'll pay a fine. a drop of water in the pacific. this guy obviously knows nothing of corporate in-house law. so do some homework on the law, then feel free to be a judgmental fag…once again
Dark star March 22, 2014 at 04:33 PM
I can judge whomever I want, whenever I want Stevie boy. That is the idea of a blog, son. It is for people to voice their opinion. This case has zero to do with corporate "in-house" law except she is a corporate lier…errr lawyer. For someone seemingly so liberal, you are quick to use homosexual slurs on people you don't even know, but that is the way you libs are taught; when losing an arguement, resort to personal attacks.

Re-read my post Gladys Dixin, I explained it.Its all there, you just need to apply your reading comprehension skills to figure it out. You can do that can't you?
Ginny March 25, 2014 at 07:42 AM
Well, this has been entertaining.
Gladys Dixin March 25, 2014 at 01:48 PM
I did reread your first post and see nothing that you base on fact, which is supported by your following post which says "I can judge whomever I want, whenever I want". That pretty much speaks for itself. You make the statement that "Her case is disintegrating all around her", but you offer nothing to support that. The rest of your posts just indicate that you're a keyboard warrior, bent on slinging insults and making judgments on your whim. It's okay if you want to do that, and to your credit - you have admitted that. To say that her case is disintegrating is nothing more than your opinion. Why not wait for the facts to come out?
Dark star March 25, 2014 at 04:53 PM
Her case was largely dependent upon her assertion the NK police acted inappropriately. The state police chose not to investigate saying the NK police did nothing wrong. Since the State Police chose not to investigate, she has no authority to corroborate her claim, hence my opinion of her case disintegrating all around her. I hope that was clear enough for you Gladys Dixin.
Gladys Dixin March 26, 2014 at 09:09 AM
OK. So just to clarify - you saw the RISP response? Or is that just your opinion as well? As I asked before - do you know any of the facts? We wouldn't want your opinion to get in the way of the facts now, would we? I haven't seen any facts in this case - only news reports. Yet, it continues to amaze me how hostile people can be when there's a keyboard and a news report in front of them. And let's not forget the perceived anonymity of the internet behind them.

any other research I can do for you?

Gladys Dixin, here is another link. This is bonus research for you. You should feel lucky, I don't usually perform research for others. http://www.turnto10.com/story/24582071/north-kingstown-woman-charged-under-social-host-law

Crickets is right. Thanks for your links to news stories that tell us that the RISP won't investigate the actions of the NKPD because that investigation has to be first done by the NKPD before the RISP can get involved. I don't see that a "disintegration" (sic). In the meantime, where is NKPD with prosecuting this? All the keyboard warriors had this woman drawn and quartered based on the news articles. Still no facts have been presented that I can see. Like you said - .....crickets..... In the meantime I choose to reserve my judgement until the NKPD and Defendant present their cases. Of course, I shall also be interested in seeing how the keyboard warriors respond to facts and not news reports and innuendos. Will they revel in the evidence or will they still pile on if there is a lack thereof? Other than that - have a great day! It's nice and sunny and Spring is here! And remember, the glass is always half full.

Charges dismissed. Way to go NKPD. How's that disintegrating case look now DS?? After all the press, the cops dropped the charges? Speaks volumes to me. I conclude her story was true, just based on that. I always thought the assault charge was laughable - what - 6' cop gets beaten up by 5' woman? If they really had a case, and Lord knows they played it up for the cameras, why a dismissal?
Dark star April 15, 2014 at 09:30 PM
North Kingstown Police Chief Thomas Mulligan said Tuesday that he believed the disposition was appropriate given that Donegan had a clean record prior to the incident. Donegan did not get preferential treatment, he said. Gimme a break Chief. So if "privileged attorney" was replaced with "average Joe", the result would have been the same? I doubt it.
Gladys Dixin April 16, 2014 at 10:28 AM
Oh Dark One - I have read reports (Either ProJo or WJAR) that state the the NKPD did not have the evidence to support the charges. And that the NKPD acknowledged that the party was overrun, as stated by Donagan. Like I said before - I'll wait for the facts, and these appear to be the facts. Gotta be killin' you though. After all your rants that she should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law (I guess she was, since the cops admitted they didn't have any evidence) and she should lose her job, etc. Don't you feel foolish for all that now? See what facts bring to a story? the truth!
CompassCarrier April 16, 2014 at 10:38 AM
Gladys: So than why did Donegan offer a 5K contribution to MADD....out of the goodness of her heart?
Gladys Dixin April 16, 2014 at 10:52 AM
Good Lord Compass - read the articles! The JUDGE set the terms. It was the JUDGE who decided what the outcome would be. From WJAR - "Let us be clear that Ms. Donegan did not receive any preferential treatment, there was simply no evidence. The judge mandated the $5,000 contribution to go to MADD. That it has chosen not to accept the donation is entirely up to them." But again - don't let the facts get in the way of your fiction! Wake up and stop hating!
CompassCarrier April 16, 2014 at 11:05 AM
So why would the judge make her pay 5K (a significant sum) if nothing happened?
CompassCarrier April 16, 2014 at 11:07 AM
And isn't that quote from her attorney Gladys?
Dark star April 16, 2014 at 11:09 AM
Exactly CompassCarrier, Donegan is an attorney, she was given preferential treatment. The 5K donation was her "penance". The well-healed and influential always get special treatment in RI. See Chafees kid who was in the same boat and got a pass. And Gladys Dixin, I do not feel foolish, because my remarks were based on information available at the time. Tell me, how does pompous taste?
CompassCarrier April 16, 2014 at 11:14 AM
And the article clearly states she reached a "deal".
Dark star April 16, 2014 at 11:16 AM
Yup, a deal reserved for the wealthy. To put it in the parlance of Clay-boy Pell "regular Rhode Islanders" would not get the same treatment.
CompassCarrier April 16, 2014 at 11:42 AM
@darkstar: they are doing everything they can not to release those Chafee records!
Gladys Dixin April 16, 2014 at 12:02 PM
I'll do these in order:Ask the Judge why he ordered the $5k. Surely no one here knows. Yes that's a quote from her attorney. Your point? (Did you read the quote from Terry Simpson?). So what if it was a deal? The articles clearly states the nk admitted they didn't have any evidence. Deals are only for the wealthy? Good to know if I ever need one! At the end of the day this seems pretty clear - she didn't provide any booze, the kids showed up drunk, nk had no case and you all blame her, with no comment on the kids who were drunk, their parents, the people who actually got those kids the booze.... Why are you all hell bent on crucifying this woman when its clear that she didn't do what she was charged with? Simpson stated that the party was overrun! And you blame her?
