Social hosting liability laws vary widely from state to state. In Rhode Island, it is against the law for a host to permit an underage person to consume alcohol. Depending on the jurisdiction, violations of social host laws can lead to civil or criminal fines, imprisonment and monetary damages awards. If you are hosting a party where alcohol is served, it is your responsibility to make sure that your guests are capable of driving safely.
