Orange County Reminds Residents of the Social Host Law
With the school year coming to an end, prom and graduation parties are right around the corner.
Not that you need the reminder since it should be common sense, but the Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus it taking the time out to remind parents to not serve alcohols to minors.
Executive Neuhaus in a press release said "This is a time for celebration, not recklessness. Parents should be aware that they can face serious consequences by allowing underage drinking at their home. We will not tolerate behavior that endangers the residents of Orange County.”
Back in 2016 Neuhaus signed legislation "to enact a Social Host Law, which is aimed at deterring the consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors by holding anyone 18 years of age or older responsible when they permit the consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors on premises."
Under the Social Host Law it is illegal for "homeowners or any host 18 years or older to knowingly allow underage drinking at their home or a party, or to not take action to stop underage drinking after they are made aware of it."
