NORTH KINGSTOWNâ€”According to North Kingstown Police Chief Thomas Mulligan, the department is looking for a new recipient for the $5,000 contribution meant for Motherâ€™s Against Drunk Driving (MADD) from Jayne Donegan. The North Kingstown resident was cleared earlier this month of violating the townâ€™s social host ordinance, among other charges.
Donegan originally pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a Jan. 25 underage drinking incident at her home. A Third District Court judge initially ordered Donegan to make a $5,000 contribution to MADD, but executive director Gabrielle Abbate issued a statement on April 16 that her organization would not accept the donation from Donegan, saying it would send the â€śwrong messageâ€ť about providing alcohol to minors.
