Where Do Teens Get Alcohol?

by Chris Cato

So how do these teenagers get the alcohol in the first place?

TABC Agent Jeff Taylor says amazingly enough, many times it's the parents. He says some parents sponsor parties so they can be sure the kids don't drink and drive.

Even if they don't get alcohol there, Taylor says many kids know the local bootleggers that will get it to them.

If you are caught supplying a minor with alcohol, you could be fined up to 4-thousand dollars, and spend up to a year in jail.
