Three people charged with supplying alcohol to a 9-year-old boy formalised their not-guilty pleas in the Hamilton District Court today.

However, neither Michael Harry King, 27, or Lucy Teari Winnie Snowdon, 25, both of Hamilton, had to appear in court as the charge was fine-only. They were further remanded for a one-day hearing on June 12.

The third accused, Kali Tiloi, 20, also of Hamilton, did make an appearance, and was remanded in custody by Judge David Ruth until April when he was due to appear on other matters.

The charges arose after a 9-year-old boy was videoed drunk and slumped against a wall at the Fairfield skate park on January 7.

The boy had earlier drunk eight cans of 7 per cent alcohol Cody's bourbon and cola and two shots.

By the time police arrived at the park the boy had scootered home, where they spoke to his mother.
