BRIGHTON, Colo. – A Brighton woman who routinely gave her teenage daughter and her daughter’s friends marijuana and alcohol agreed to a plea deal Monday.

Michelle Manzanares, 41, pleaded guilty to three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was sentenced to four years of probation.

She originally faced 20 criminal charges, including child abuse.

According to the arrest affidavit, Manzanares was well-known amongst her middle school daughter’s friends as someone who gave them booze and pot.

Police say they confiscated a video showing the young girls smoking marijuana and drinking vodka with Manzanares in the room.
