Boca Raton House Party


October 14, 2010 | By Jerome Burdi, Sun Sentinel

BOCA RATON - About 350 underage party crashers brought alcohol to a Boca Raton mansion early Sunday after Homecoming at American Heritage School in Plantation. And within 15 minutes, students were drinking, passed out and vomiting on the property, an attorney said.

At least four calls to 911 sent paramedics and police to the home.

Some of Sunday's events - recounted Wednesday by Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense Lawyer Adam Harmelin, attorney for the homeowners - differ from what Boca Raton police wrote in their report.

In a call to the house, a dispatcher spoke with a woman who identified herself as the homeowner. She grew frantic when the dispatcher told her what was going on.

"We don't have anybody unconscious. Where are they?" she asked.

During the party, hosts Shlomo and Jeannie Rasabi, parents of two American Heritage teens, stood on the stairwell, making sure no one came upstairs at the $2.7 million, 17,000-square-foot home in The Sanctuary community, Harmelin said.

However, the police report said the couple were in their bedroom and knew nothing of what was going on downstairs.

"I didn't even know all these kids were here; they all brought alcohol into the house," Shlomo Rasabi said, according to the police report. "My wife and I planned a party for Homecoming for American Heritage School in which all the kids had a party at our house, [but] it was never supposed to get this big. I was in my room the whole time."

Harmelin and police, though, agree that the couple was unaware that some of the 500 juveniles were drinking themselves unconscious.
