|CAMDEN — She is a deceitful woman who betrayed the trust of parents by supplying alcohol to their sons during weekend blowouts at her home that left at least one teen unconscious from drinking, and who engaged in sexual acts with another, according to an assistant county prosecutor.|
Defense lawyers contend the woman is a doting mother who was so intent on having her son fit in with a fast crowd that she caved in to the teenagers' demands to purchase alcohol. The defense lawyers adamantly denied their client had sexual contact with any teen.
Those were the two pictures painted yesterday in Camden County Superior Court during closing arguments in the trial of Denise Krykewycz, 43, of Runnemede, who was found guilty of having had oral sex with a teenager and endangering the welfare of children by serving them alcohol in excessive amounts. The jury deliberated just over six hours and announced its verdict about 7 p.m.
Krykewycz, a married mother of five sons, was accused of supplying alcohol to her second-oldest son and five of his friends at her three-bedroom townhouse on various weekends from September to November in 1997. At the time, the defense lawyers said, the son who was drinking was 15.
The jury ruled, however, that she had not had sexual intercourse with her son's friend, according to Robin D. Buser, one of her lawyers.
A sentencing date has not yet been set. Krykewycz, a telemarketer who lives on Central Avenue, remains free on $5,000 bail. She was arrested on Jan. 13, 1998.
"What this case is about is buying hard alcohol and substantial amounts of beer and allowing boys to drink themselves into unconsciousness," Assistant County Prosecutor Philip Coyle told the jury.
On numerous occasions, according to Coyle, Krykewycz purchased vodka, brandy and beer with money given to her by the teens. According to Coyle, the teens would then "drink themselves into oblivion." It was during these parties, Coyle said, that Krykewycz engaged in sexual acts with one of her son's teenage friends.
In the hallway outside the courtroom yesterday, defense lawyers Louis N. Caggiano Jr. and Buser said that Krykewycz supplied alcohol to her sons and their friends "on occasion," but that the accusation by one of the teens that she engaged in sexual acts with him when he was 15 was "adolescent fantasy."
On Nov. 14, 1997, authorities were called to the Krykewycz home after receiving noise complaints from neighbors. Runnemede police found teens drinking alcohol in the living room and found a 14-year-old incoherent in a shower. Paramedics were called, and the teen was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.
