Legal Question: Liability for Underage Drinking

As a homeowner, am I liable for a woman who lied about her age and then was cited for a DUI after leaving our home?

You could be charged with the crime of Furnishing Liquor to a Minor. If you have spoken with a Sheriff and haven’t heard anything, they may have decided not to forward the case to the prosecuting attorney for charges. It is also possible that they are just processing the paperwork and you will receive notice to appear in court sometime in the future. Do not talk with law enforcement further until you have spoken with a criminal defense attorney.
