Florence adults charged after police bust underage drinking party

Not all South Carolina residents wait until they are 21 to have their first taste of alcohol. Drinking underage, while illegal, is a fairly common youthful indiscretion. While drinking underage is often harmless, police and prosecutors in South Carolina still take underage drinking very seriously. Juveniles who are charged with this crime can end up facing very harsh consequences, including fines and jeopardized scholarship and college admission opportunities, among other things. Adults who are accused of providing minors with alcohol can also face stiff penalties.

Last week, two Florence adults were arrested after being linked to an underage drinking party, according to a news report. The two are now facing charges for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

According to a news report, Florence County Deputies responded to a report of underage drinking on Feb. 11. They went into a home and found underage drinkers and open containers of alcohol. The two adults who live in the residence, a 24-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man, were arrested.

All of the alleged underage drinkers received courtesy summonses.

In many cases, adults can wind up facing charges like this even if they did not themselves provide the alcohol to minors.

Youths and adults who face charges related to underage drinking in South Carolina may benefit from legal counsel. Individuals often think that these charges are not very serious, but in fact they can lead to harsh consequences. It is important that South Carolina residents are aware of their legal rights and options when facing such charges.
