Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - Three adults, and 16 juveniles have been charged, after Police were called to a graduation party in Ocean City.

Maryland State Police - Berlin Barrack say with assistance from the Worcester County Sheriff's Office and the Ocean City Police Department, they responded to a home on Golf Course Road, for reports of a large party, with underage drinking, and a fight in progress. When Troopers arrived on scene, they say they sent three people to Atlantic General Hospital, two for being unconscious from alcohol/CDS consumption, and another from injuries sustained in an assault. The victim of the assault apparently refused to cooperate with officials.

Police say their investigation showed that the homeowner, 55-year-old Kathy Devenny was having a graduation party for her son, when it got out of control. A search of the home reportedly revealed 16 juveniles possessing and consuming alcoholic beverages.

Kathy Devenny, along with her son 19-year-old John Devenny and daughter, 20-year-old Sarah Devenny, apparently had several items of drug paraphernalia and marijuana in their possession. The Worcester County Drug Task Force also responded to the scene to assist the other agencies.

Charges are currently pending against Kathy Devenny, including contributing to delinquency of minors, furnishing alcohol to minors, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and reckless endangerment.

John and Sarah Devenny were each charged with possession of paraphernalia/CDS. Twenty-year-old Jermain Purnell was also charged with possession of CDS. Troopers say they charged a total of 16 juveniles with alcohol possession and consumption.

Maryland State Police say the investigation into this incident is continuing at this time.
