Adults who host parties with minors could be liable

Email News Alerts

Hubbard County is looking into a new ordinance that would make the adult hosts of a party that supplied underage kids alcohol criminally liable.


The social host ordinance would foist criminal liability on adults who host minors at functions in which alcohol is knowingly being served.

"It's just an additional tool we could use when we get these calls," said Hubbard County Attorney Don Dearstyne.
