A Charlottesville mother who supplied alcohol for her son's 16th birthday party reported to jail Monday.

Elisa Kelly was booked into jail Monday morning. She is sentenced to 2 years and three months, but says it is much more than she expected.

The commonwealth attorneys office says part of their sentencing was because Elisa supplied alcohol to minors, misled parent's when asked if there would be drinking at the party and encouraged the kids to lie to police officers.

"This was a misdemeanor offense for me. It's a long time, it's really harsh. It's a very harsh thing on my kids y'know. They don't know what to do. I'm out of a home. I don't have any place to live and they depend on me for a lot of things" said Kelly.

Elisa's oldest son, who she threw the party for, is now 20 years old. Both her children are living with their father here in Charlottesville while she serves her sentence.
