KINGSTON (WATE) – A Roane County mom is accused of letting eleven kids drink and smoke pot in her house.
Investigators say Kimberly Hall was arrested at her home in Harriman last week. The party was back in September.
One of the eleven children was her 17-year-old daughter. Law enforcement were not alerted about the party at the time it was allegedly going on. They were contacted by DCS after they heard about what may have been happening in the home.
"She's an excellent mom," said Anna Stafford, Kimberly's best friend.
The kids in the house were between 15 and 17 years old.
"There's a question about whether she provided it to the juveniles, or if she just failed to act as an adult," said Chief Deputy Tim Phillips with the Roane County Sheriff's Office.
Since the incident, the house has been rented out to someone else. Anna Stafford is Kimberly's best friend and did an interview on her behalf.
"She was there but did not know marijuana was being smoked at the house. Right now she's having a nervous breakdown because of all the publicity," Stafford explained.
Stafford tells us Hall was in the house, but did not know what was specifically going on at the party.
If that's true or not will be up to the court to decide.
"It's our duty protect the kids," Chief Deputy Phillips said.
"I hope the truth comes out and people get to know the real Kim Hall. Kim Hall would never let something like this happen," Stafford said, defending her friend.
Stafford told us Hall has lost custody of her seventeen-year-old daughter, which is part of the drama she's dealing with right now. She has a court date in September, that will figure out the outcome of the incident.
