Mom in Trouble for Helping Son Make Gelatin Shots

A Central Texas woman has been sentenced to three years of probation for providing alcohol to her underage son and his friends to make about 200 gelatin shots.

Five of the youths who'd been drinking were later seriously injured in a car accident. The driver told investigators that he consumed as many as 40 of the shots.

A judge in Georgetown on Thursday sentenced 45-year-old Donna Crites of Hutto. Crites in March pleaded guilty to five counts of purchasing or furnishing alcohol to minors over the March 2010 incident. She also must serve a week in jail.

A man who was at the home the night of the incident pleaded guilty last year to purchasing or furnishing alcohol to minors and served more than three months behind bars.
