Know the Risks; Know the Law.

Giving alcohol to those less than 21 years of age is a Class A misdemeanor, just one degree below a felony. The punishment for this offense includes fines up to $4,000 and a year in jail for each charge in addition to an automatic 180-day suspension of the violator’s driver’s license which is not up to the discretion of a judge or prosecutor. Regardless of the circumstances, the act is a crime and local law enforcement and district attorneys’ offices are stepping up efforts to arrest and prosecute offenders.
