Wilson was charged with allowing underage consumption of alcohol on her property, as well as endangering the welfare of children.
Capt. Michael deMoncada stated, "The amount of hard alcohol observed at the scene, along with the presence of illicit drugs is always concerning at these types of incidents. This type of conduct will not be tolerated, and the Tenafly Police Department will aggressively pursue criminal complaints against anyone who allows underage consumption of alcohol on their property."
Investigators are looking into who attended the party and say additional charges are likely to be filed as they are identified.
Wilson has a court date scheduled for November.
Anyone with more information about the party is asked to call the Tenafly Police Department Detective Bureau at (201) 568-5100.
