A Casper man suspected of drinking with his teenage daughters and their friends pleaded not guilty Monday to five misdemeanor charges.

Cody Joseph TenBoer and the girls were drunk when officers found them Friday evening at a west Casper home, police said. Two of the girls, ages 15 and 16, required medical attention and were taken to Wyoming Medical Center.

Prosecutors charged TenBoer with three counts of child endangerment and two counts of furnishing alcohol to minors. He entered the not guilty pleas during his initial appearance in Natrona County Circuit Court.

Police responded to a west side home Friday evening after another child at the house reported that TenBoer and the girls were drunk and she didn’t want to babysit them.

An officer found four drunken girls ranging in age from 14 to 16, police said. They located TenBoer in another room, along with three empty bottles of whisky and vodka.

Police said they performed tests on three of the girls that indicated their blood alcohol concentrations were all beyond the legal limit for adults. The girls told authorities TenBoer bought the alcohol and drank it with them, according to his arrest affidavit.

Officers were unable to perform a test on the fourth girl.

TenBoer remained free Monday afternoon on $750 bond. He asked for a trial before a judge.
