Sleepover results in arrest

A 20-year-old Laurel County woman faces endangerment charges stemming from a recent sleep-over where alcohol was served to three minors.

Whitney Nicole Denny was arrested on three counts each of wanton endangerment and unlawful transaction with a minor, according to a Kentucky State Police news release.

The charges stem from an investigation of the alleged incident last weekend at a house on Vanzant Road in southern Laurel County. One of the parents called state police and asked them to check on her daughter. The teenage girls were intoxicated and required medical attention at an area hospital.

Denny was arraigned Wednesday morning in Laurel District Court by Judge John Miller. She is in the Laurel County jail on $25,000 bond, of which she must pay 10 percent. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 9.
