Party is over for man charged with criminal trespass after graduation celebration at mom's home

The party is definitely over for a man facing a criminal trespass case after his mother opted to press charges over an out-of-control house party in upstate New York earlier this month.

Gregory York, 23, told sheriff’s officers he had his parents’ permission to host the July 3 gathering at their home in Pompey, although they were not home, according to the Associated Press and earlier coverage. Law enforcement officers from three agencies responded to persuade some 500 to 700 guests to leave, with the help of an overhead spotlight from a Onondaga County helicopter.

York is being held in lieu of $2,500 cash bail in the Town of Manlius case, the AP reports.
