What happens if you sell alcohol to a minor?


Answer by  wrusche (176)

In most if not all states you could be charged with a crime. You may also face civil liability if that minor gets into an accident.

You can be fined and imprisoned if it habitual. You may also lose your liquor license and your place can be shut down by the city. That is why you have to be sure you are selling to a legal person so check all id carefully to avoid any forgeries.

Well, liquor laws are enforced by the states. If you are caught selling liquor to a minor (an undercover minor), then you will receive a citation, if it is your first offense. And it won't win you friends on the liquor licensing board.
