    DA calls tough sentence a prom season warning

    BEVERLY - In a strong message to adults tempted to host parties for underage drinkers, a Salem judge has sentenced a Beverly woman to six months in prison for permitting teenage drinking at her home two years ago.

    It was believed to be the first time a person was sent to jail under the state’s social host law when a fatality was not involved.
