Judy Smart is a 17-year-old high school junior. One Saturday night, she is drinking beer with a number of her high school friends in the basement of her home. Judy's parents, Bob and Mary Smart, are home at the time. They did not buy the beer the underage minors are consuming, but they are aware of the party in their basement. Bob and Mary Smart do nothing to stop the party. On the way home, one intoxicated minor is killed when she drives her car into a ditch. Can Bob and Mary Smart be charged with a crime? Why or why not?
