Senate Bill Would Send Parents To Jail For Providing Alcohol To Children

There is proposed legislation in the Indiana Senate that would make it so that parents who allow underage drinking in their homes would face arrest, prosecution, jail time and fines.

Senate Bill 28 mirrors the so-called “social host” liability laws in at least 28 other states and goes beyond holding parents responsible for just providing alcohol to teens.

The law would penalize adults for condoning teen drinking, even if those adults didn’t buy or supply the booze. Under the bill if you are convicted you could receive up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
