A 52-year-old woman from Tomaszów Mazowiecki (Łódź Province), suspected of buying alcohol for two 13-year-old daughters and persuading them to drink, is facing up to two years in prison. The case came to light when the police were alerted by the detained’s adult son.
On Saturday, just before midnight, a 22-year-old man called on duty at Tomaszów’s headquarters and told him that his 13-year-old sister was most likely drunk. According to her brother’s account, the girl was brought home by her 52-year-old mother. A police car drove to the scene.
– It turned out that the mother and daughter are intoxicated. An adult woman had nearly two alcohol levels, says senior aspirant Grzegorz Stasiak from the district headquarters in Tomaszów Mazowiecki. The police found out that there was another daughter of the 52-year-old, also thirteen, outside the house. – The officers established that the girl is still staying with a neighbor, where her mother drank alcohol – adds the senior asp. Stasiak.
The mother gave alcohol to her 13-year-old daughters
Officers brought a second teenager home and checked her sobriety. It turned out that – like her sister – she is drunk. – An ambulance is called. The rescuers decided that the girls and their mother did not require hospitalization – says Grzegorz Stasiak.
The police established that the minors had been given alcohol by their mother. The woman bought the wine and, by sharing it with her daughters, persuaded them to consume it. Thus, the 52-year-old woman committed a crime, which gave rise to her detention. The teenagers were cared for by the family – adds the policeman.
The 52-year-old heard accusations of violating the law on sobriety and drunkenness of underage daughters. She faces up to two years in prison.
