Underage Drinking... What Are The Laws?
Underage Drinking: The Facts
It is illegal to give alcohol to your teen’s underage friends under any circumstances – even in your own home, even with their parents’ permission.
You cannot knowingly allow a person under 21, other than your own child, to consume or possess alcohol in your home or on your property.
What can happen if you break the law
You face a maximum sentence of 30 days in jail and $1,075 in fines and fees.
Your penalties can “stack up,” as you can be ticketed for each underage person you provide with alcohol.
You can be sued if you give alcohol to anyone under 21 and they, in turn, hurt someone, hurt themselves or damage property.
What you can do to protect yourself
Refuse to supply alcohol to anyone under 21
Be at home when your teen has friends over
Make sure that alcohol is not brought into your home or property by your teen’s friends
Talk to other parents about not providing alcohol at other events your child will be attending
Create alcohol-free opportunities and activities in your home so teens feel welcome
Report underage drinking to local law enforcement
