Four Culpeper adults charged with contributing to the delinquency of minors

Four adults are facing charges for contributing to the delinquency of minors after providing alcohol to juveniles and allowing them to smoke marijuana earlier this month.

Deputies believe that on Oct. 6, 2012, Diana L. Walker, 47, of Richardsville, purchased alcohol for her underage son, and three of his friends, prior to Eastern View High School’s homecoming dance.

Walker allegedly brought three of the teenagers to the home of another adult, John H. McDevitt V, 18, of Culpeper, and allowed them to drink alcohol and smoke marijuana in her presence.

Deputies believe two other adults, Alvin A. Chura Jr., 18, of Culpeper and Kenneth H. Olenslager, 18, of Culpeper, were also present at McDevitt’s house on East Piedmont Street in Culpeper when the juveniles were drinking and smoking.

Later that evening, Walker allegedly brought the teenagers to her house on White Rock Drive in Richardsville, where a fourth juvenile arrived and also drank alcohol.

As a result of this case, Walker is charged with four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and one charge of purchasing alcohol for an unauthorized person. She was released from the Culpeper County Jail on a $5,000 secured bond.

McDevitt, Chura and Olenslager are each charged with three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

McDevitt and Chura were each released from the Culpeper County Jail on a $1,000 secured bond.

Olenslager was released on a $2,500 unsecured bond.

The case was investigated by Cpl. Marshall Keene, the school resource officer at Eastern View High School.
