Kershaw Co. Sheriff issues stern warning to teens, parents on prom parties

KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WIS) - The Kershaw County Sheriff's Office is not mincing words about the stiff penalties that could be levied if illegal activity is happening at post-prom parties.

In a Facebook post addressed to parents of Camden High School students, the sheriff's office says they are aware of a number of post-prom parties where underage drinking was being planned.

The warning says that while they expect teenagers to be careless, they do not want parents who planned on allowing teens to drink at these parties to be careless as well.

The Kershaw County Sheriff's Office has received numerous tips on after prom parties, some of which are to be held at homes on Lake Wateree and we know which ones they are. Much of the information received concerns underage drinking, young people using fake ID's to buy alcohol and some drug use.
