Providing Alcohol to Minors

In recent years, there have been many debates on drinking laws and how they apply to the legal drinking age of 21. While some people argue that persons who are 18 or older should be allowed to purchase and consume alcohol, others may claim that maturity and other factors make it necessary to keep the limits higher.

In any event, it is illegal to provide alcohol to persons under the age of 18, and minors who choose to consume alcohol illegally may face criminal charges. While minor-in-possession charges are relatively minor compared to other crimes, other charges like DWI and DUI are also very common for persons who were given alcohol illegally.
