Vernon dad held on $10k bail after allegedly providing alcohol, pot to teenagers
A Vernon father is being held on a $10,000 cash bond, being charged last week with allegedly providing marijuana and alcohol to his 15-year-old daughter and her friends during a May 26 house party.
Brian A. Gumieny was charged June 11 in Waukesha County Circuit Court with delivering marijuana to minors, felony bail jumping and seven counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Gumieny, 36, was previously charged in October with resisting arrest, battery to law enforcement and battery to emergency workers and was released on a $500 cash bond. The defense has requested in that case that a report be done to determine whether Gumieny is competent to stand trial.
According to the criminal complaint, a detective with the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department on May 28 received an anonymous tip that an underage drinking party was held two days earlier at Gumieny's house, S66 W24770 Skyline Ave., Town of Vernon.
The detective interviewed seven Mukwonago High School students, including Gumieny's daughter. All seven teens, ages 14 to 16, told the detective that Gumieny had brought the alcohol to the house, the complaint said.
The teens told the detective the father also provided marijuana, according to the complaint. Gumieny allegedly called an acquaintance and drove four teenagers to Milwaukee's North Side to pick it up.
The father admitted to police that he provided alcohol and marijuana for the party, the complaint said. He drank a little and and called a friend to buy marijuana after several boys at the party asked about it, he said in the complaint.
If convicted, Gumieny could face more than 14 years in prison and $90,000 in fines.
His next expected court date is June 21.
