Defense lawyer in trouble after rowdy teen party

A prominent Massachusetts lawyer could face criminal charges after hosting what police records describe as an alcohol-fueled New Year’s Eve party for her teenage daughter at their Scituate home.

Scituate police accused Tracy A. Miner, 54, who has been deemed one of the best white-collar criminal defense lawyers in the country by her peers, of furnishing alcohol to minors, a violation of the state’s social host law, and of keeping a disorderly house. Miner, her 17-year-old daughter, and seven others ages 17 to 19 were summoned to appear before a clerk magistrate in Hingham District Court to determine if charges should be filed.
