The two young hosts of the Orinda party in May where Miramonte student Joe Loudon, 16, died have both entered not guilty pleas through their attorney for the charges against them of furnishing alcohol to a minor. The pleas were entered in Contra Costa Superior Court in Walnut Creek.
In addition to having their pleas entered, the judge in charge of the case requested that Alexandria and Patrick Gabrielli both be present for their next scheduled hearing on Feb. 23. Neither was in court on Monday after they each posted $5,000 bail.
Investigators believe that alcohol may have contributed to Loudon’s death, but his death has been ruled accidental.
