What is it? The Furnishing of Alcohol to a Minor is where a person of legal age furnishes an alcoholic beverage to a person under the age of 21.

What makes it illegal? The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code Sec. 106.06. PURCHASE OF ALCOHOL FOR A MINOR; FURNISHING ALCOHOL TO A MINOR indicates that a person commits an offense if the person purchases an alcoholic beverage for or gives or makes available an alcoholic beverage to a minor.

What are the Punishments? For individuals arrested for Furnishing of Alcohol, the offense is a Class A Misdemeanor, meaning the individual could face up to one year in state jail and fines of up to $4000.

Common Criminal Cases Involving Furnishing of Alcohol Arrests: The most common the Furnishing of Alcohol arrests are the result of a friend or relative purchasing alcohol for a minor, where the minor is arrested and tells officers where the alcohol came from, thereby allowing the officer to arrest the furnisher. Another common scenario is a bartender or retail store clerk knowingly selling alcohol to a person underage. Of interest is subsection (b), allowing a parent or guardian to purchase and serve alcohol to their children as long as the consumption is in their presence.
