Former Arlington Selectwoman Annie LaCourt and her husband Mark Burstein are facing three more charges in connection to an alleged underage drinking party at their home last month, Arlington police said today.

A magistrate from the Middlesex County Juvenile Court in Cambridge found probable cause Thursday to charge LaCourt and Burstein each with three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. No arraignment date has been set, according to Arlington Police Captain Richard Flynn.

The charges came a day after a Middlesex District Court magistrate found probable cause to charge LaCourt and Burstein with 33 counts of furnishing alcohol to a person under 21. The couple will be arraigned on those charges on Dec. 21.

The couple's attorney, Tom Brant, said Wednesday that Lacourt and Burstein look forward to fighting the charges.

Arlington Police sought the charges after officers allegedly discovering teenagers drinking beer at LaCourt and Burstein’s home on Chatham Street on Oct. 19. A total of 33 people under the age of 21 were at the home, including mostly 17-year-olds and three 16-year-olds. Police said 21 of the teens had been drinking.

Police said LaCourt and Burstein were home and knew about the party. Police said they discovered a similar party at the couple’s home in 2009, but no charges were filed.
