Question:

What should I do if an underage individual is caught drinking in my dorm room?

Answer:

If you’re having a party and you’re a college student, and the cops break up the party because it’s too loud or for whatever reason, and there are people there who are underage drinking, the only time you would face a penalty for that is if you provided them with the alcohol. If you’re simply having a gathering of friends and one of your friends has a girlfriend that’s 17, you’re not responsible for her. Even if it’s taking place at your home, as long as you’re not the one that’s providing the alcohol, you shouldn’t be facing any charges. If you do provide the alcohol, then you will be charged with providing alcohol to a minor. That is a felony charge, and you’re going to need representation if that’s the case. It will all depend on how the police are viewing the situation when they come upon it.

If you are being charged with providing alcohol to a minor, call me and I’ll be happy to discuss this with you.
