GENEVA – Ten people were charged in an underage drinking party, including one of Mayor Kevin Burns’ daughters, Florence C. Burns, 19, of the 800 block of Foxwood Circle, Geneva, according to police reports.

The mayor said he would not comment about the incident.

Police Cmdr. Julie Nash said in an email response to questions that police received an anonymous complaint about underage people at a drinking party at a house on the 1000 block of Fargo Boulevard early May 25.

According to the report, those attending the party were drinking mostly beer and liquor. The party’s host has not been charged because it still is under investigation, Nash said. If no charges are filed for hosting an underage drinking party, it would be because of the totality of the circumstances.

Each person charged received a $250 fine and a notice to appear Tuesday at Kane County Branch Court, according to police reports. 

Also charged were Kevin J. Higgens, 19, of the 2700 block of Patten Avenue, Geneva; Mark Q. Cummings III, 19, of the 0S800 block of Thorndon Ridge Drive, Blackberry Township; Ashley N. Mistak, 19, of the 0N400 block of Sulley Drive, Blackberry Township; and Erin M. Cameron, 19, of the 300 block of Colonial Circle, Geneva.

Also charged were Jonathan W. Kapfhamer, 19, of the 700 block of Lincoln Avenue, Geneva;  Katherine J. Fischer, 18, of the 38W500 block of Dobson Lane, Geneva Township; Nicholas R. Caruso, 19, of the 500 block of South Eighth Street, Geneva; Kyle J. Hurley, 19, of the 300 block of Westhaven Circle, Geneva; and Jake J. Peterson, 19, of the 1000 block of Fargo Boulevard, Geneva.
