TABC Announces Minor Stings

Once again we are in the high school prom and graduation season. The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission ( TABC ) recently announced on May 6th more plainclothes undercover sting operations. Minors are used as decoys to see if businesses will sell alcohol to minors. Prom season and graduations are times of celebration and fun, but too many times these celebrations involve the illegal sale and consumption of alcohol. Too many lives, dreams, and families have been shattered by underage consumption.

When Can a Minor Legally be in Possession of Alcohol?

Remember that it is only legal for a minor to drink alcohol if they are in the visible presence of their of age parent, spouse, or legal guardian. A minor can be in possession of alcohol in 4 ways. With the aforementioned parent, spouse, or guardian – employment – sting operation – and tasting alcohol in a cooking school.
