A California dad was recently in the national news talking about criminal charges and fines he is facing because of underage drinking that went on in his house while he was home. The Stanford professor said that he prohibited drinking at the party and checked on the party in the basement twice to make sure there was no alcohol involved.
A call to police tipping them off that underage drinking may be occurring at the party sent law enforcement to the home where they indeed found alcohol being consumed by minors. Under social host laws, the dad was responsible for the drinking of the minors and had to spend a night in jail. He also is facing 44 counts of suspicion of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Each count carries up to a year in jail and up to a $2,500 fine.
